This Volunteers in Mission work team is a group of volunteers who share their time, talents, and money for this mission. The volunteers (their local church and/or other support groups) pay their own travel and material expenses so they can participate in this mission. They do so because they have a strong, earnest desire in their hearts to serve others. The experience is one of sharing with others. It is working side-by-side and worshiping with our brothers and sisters in Christ in another state, living and working under conditions they experience daily.
On Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013, a tornado ripped its way through Washington, Illinois and other surrounding communities. At this point, around 50% of cleanup has been done. Most of the jobs are related to clean up. Almost 500 homes have been served so far.
