With the frequency of major disasters and the current threat of terrorism, there has never been a better time or a better reason for the PCA as a denomination to show God’s love and mercy in this vital way. Through offering many types of assistance to the victims of a broad range of catastrophic situations, we hope to meet the victims’ immediate needs, help to rebuild their lives and hopefully affect their eternal destiny as well.
Different kinds of disasters will require different skills. Some of the ways to help are the following: chainsaw crews, debris-clearing crews, patching and repair (handy men and women), Christian counseling (clergy, chaplains, therapists), rebuilding (construction workers), administrative assistants, job needs assessors, computer skills, doctors/nurses/EMT’s/medics and miscellaneous skills at the staging area of the disasters.
