Donate To Harvey Relief Efforts

disaster relief serve team
trip dates - saturday, sept 16th & sunday sept 17th

Through Destiny Ministries, we have been assigned to partner with Turning Point Church in Vidor, Texas near the Beaumont area. Here we will most likely be assigned to help with some of the restoration efforts through a process referred to as "mucking". We will go into the homes of the community and prep them for restoration. 
Some of the tasks involved will include; ​​​​​​​tearing down damaged sheet rock, ripping out carpet/flooring, clearing homes of damaged items, furniture, and appliances, among other things of similar nature. 

FOOD
Understanding that this is a response to a disaster and that resources may be limited during travel, and in the disaster areas, we have to be as self-sufficient as possible not relying on those that need us. 
Calvary Church will provide plenty of water and some snacks for the duration of the trip. We have been informed that there are multiple restaurants and fast food places open in the area. This will be the main source of our meals. But you are more than welcome to bring your own meals with you.
All meals are each team member's financial responsibility.

ACCOMMODATIONS
Turning Point Church has been so gracious to have opened up their facilities to house us for Saturday Night. 
There are multiple cots set up for us as well as showers and restrooms.

TRANSPORTATION
We will have some transportation available via the church vans.
To reserve a seat, please contact Pastor Manny at (817) 996-7156.
