Hurricane Sandy Relief

Hurricane Sandy has been called "the storm of the century."Sandy 2

It's hard for us here in sunny, warm San Diego to imagine the magnitude and the loss this storm has brought into so many lives.

Pray to our Heavenly Father for the people whose lives have been blown over and burned to the ground.

Pray to our Heavenly Father for their physical needs:

What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

James 2.14-17

Pray to our Heavenly Father that He would use this extreme difficulty to draw people closer to Himself:

Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.

2 Corinthians 1.9

And give from the generous gifts our Heavenly Father has given you:

We have several sister Evangelical Free Churches of America (EFCA, our denomination) who were in the path of Sandy, and who are leading efforts to care for and love others on the ground. You can learn more, and join them in the relief through the EFCA here
