Responding to the Oklahoma Tornado

moore oklahoma damage
Many have asked how Timberline Church is responding to the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma and other areas. The easy answer is that we have already responded to these types of emergencies in advance through our participation in One Day to Feed The World. Your financial contributions have helped position Convoy of Hope to be on site.

Here’s what Convoy of Hope emailed on Tuesday morning:

“Yesterday afternoon, immediately after devastating tornadoes struck Moore, Okla., a Convoy of Hope assessment team was in the area and our tractor-trailers were being loaded with emergency supplies at our World Distribution Center in Springfield, Missouri.

Earlier this morning those tractor-trailers and specially-trained, disaster response team members departed for Moore. This is only the first phase of a full-scale response that will last for many weeks, if not months. In the coming days we will send more food, water and supplies to help families begin rebuilding their lives.”

How can you help? Pray for the families whose lives have been turned upside down. Financial donations can be put in the offering at Timberline Church with a note on the memo line or sent to Convoy of Hope at www.ConvoyOfHope.org. For those interested and available in physically volunteering, contact Samaritan’s Purse at www.samaritanspurse.org.
