Flood relief update

On July 2 we sent out our last team down to the flood zone. We received word that the safety of our volunteers was at risk due to the mold that was growing. Mold is an extremely hazardous thing to deal with and it requires safety precautions that we are not prepared to deal with. It was a difficult decision, but one that we felt was necessary to protect the longterm health of our volunteers.

Right now we are interacting with a group that may be coming to do construction. If they decide to come they believe they will be bringing somewhere around 6-800 volunteers, which would include up to 50% skilled workers. Please pray that this would come to fruition. Tye out.
