We have several Disaster Rebuilds that have started up this month, and I wanted to make special mention of our remarkable DR Leadership. They have extra difficulties sometimes due to sending the team to multiple homes/sites and with the team composition potentially changing every week. We could not serve so many in this way without them, so please give thanks to God for all that they are doing. In Bastrop, Bill and Cheryl Wessels are leading the teams for us, and in Haleyville, AL, Arlin and ...
Our folks are on site now in Haleyville, and believe we can add one more RV to the size of the teams, beginning Oct 29th, and running through the end of this year. Please use the signup software and join us there if you can.

Your DR Committee has been very active this year in responding to requests for help from various areas of the country. They now have scheduled three separate project locations for the Fall 2012 months. However, these projects can't succeed without the active support of members to staff them. All three projects still have openings in most weeks, but Bastrop, TX, is especially short of help. All three of these projects will be run as RTPs (Revolving Team Projects), meaning that you can sign up to ...
