In the wake of the devastating mudslides that recently swept through Montecito, here are a few simple and effective ways that you can be the hands and feet of Jesus to those affected.
Donate to the ongoing relief in the aftermath of the mudslides. Direct Relief is a local organization with a great reputation as a charity and relief organization. They are on the ground in Montecito.
Pray for those who’s loved ones have passed away.
Pray for first responders who are searching tirelessly to find missing persons.
Pray for survivors–their physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
Pray for extra strength to nurses and doctors who are beyond capacity.
Pray for strength for the entire community here.
Pray for our leaders.
Pray for God-given wisdom that will be needed for long-term recovery.
Pray for light to shine, comfort to heal, and hope to sustain.
There are currently very few people allowed near the scene of the mudslides, to allow first responders to find survivors. But as the evacs lift, there may be many needs emerging. If you would like to be on standby for volunteering opportunities that may surface in the aftermath, email email@example.com with your name, cell number, and put “thomasflood” in the subject line. We will notify you as soon as we become aware of community needs.
