Yesterday a hugely destructive tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma taking many lives and leaving many people homeless. As most of you know a large part of what we do at Mission U-Too is disaster relief, both in our own communities and to those around us. It has been a tough month for disasters and it doesn’t look like it is going to get any better anytime soon.
We are packing up tomorrow and heading to Oklahoma to serve and offer support to their community. We need your help and we need your prayers. As we prepare to head up for the next few days here are a few ways you can practically help:
- Donate Food – We need burgers, buns and all the fixings. You can drop off donations in Llano, Bastrop or Round Rock today. Contact Jonah at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the exact locations and times.
- Volunteer – Not only do we need food to serve, we need people to help serve. We are looking for some more people to come with us to Oklahoma tomorrow when we head out first thing in the morning, or on Monday. If you would like to go with us, please email Jonah at email@example.com today.
- Pray, Pray, Pray – We need you to pray for the families affected as well as the first responders, but also pray for Mission U-Too and the leadership that God would use us and show us where He wants us when we get there.
As Mission U-Too continues to grow, we encourage each of you to pray about how God wants you to get involved to be His hands and feet. As much as we want you to join us and help us with this trip to Oklahoma there are many needs at home in our own communities throughout Central Texas. So get involved, let God use you to share His love. Be willing to go and give yourself up to follow Jesus.
Our prayer is that you would be inspired by the journey God has commissioned us at Mission U-Too to be on, and that it encourages you to start out on your own journey of following Christ. It’s not about Mission U-Too or anything we are doing, it is all about God and His Kingdom.
We appreciate your prayers and support as we travel to Oklahoma, as well as your support throughout our communities here in Texas. We love seeing how God uses so many people to further His Kingdom.
