But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love, answer me. With your faithful help
That the Spirit may move upon the hearts of others to give of their time in service to share love and hope
For safety in their travels and in their work
For strength and wisdom for the task ahead. For those who work long-term organizing local recovery efforts after disasters
For the men at Huntersfield Christian Training Center in the Discover Life Ministry - that they have continued grace to grow spiritually and learn new life skills for their recovery
- Specifically for Alan as he join us as a long term volunteer in Pamlico County
How we help
Passionate about reaching the hurting and inspiring others to be as well.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. Show me your faith apart from your works, and I by my works will show you my faith. James 2:14-17
To develop a self-sustained, Ministry Minded organization which can deploy to a disaster affected community with professional staff and sufficient resources to:
"In October 2015 the South Carolinas experienced record-breaking rainfall as 11 trillion gallons of water fell during a three-day period. In Columbia, rivers overflowed, more than 20 dams – including the historic Columbia Canal – breached, and water filled thousands of homes and businesses across the area. Tim Sheaffer was among the first groups to arrive to provide immediate relief and help to begin the process of long-term recovery. Tim showed deep compassion for helping people and allowed many in our community to return home."
