My church has been involved with Samaritans Purse relief efforts in Kiln, Mississippi and in Biloxi. When I heard this I felt God tugging me in that direction. I'm not a preach-the-word street side missions kinda guy. But I can rip down drywall like maniac.
So it turns out that Samaritans Purse is well staffed in Mississippi and my church has a plethora of volunteers. This means that I am now the first alternate for a missions trip to New Orleans at the end of February. I have mixed feelings. But if they need me I'll answer the call.
Now I get to adjust my schedule for a tetanus shot and make time for the trip.
