When disaster strikes, decisions have to be made and actions are needed within just hours. These decisions and actions affect communities for years to come. Our goal is to get boots on the ground within 72 hours of a disaster to bring hope back to the hearts of the community and spread Christ’s love through every helping hand.
But when a tornado hit Tupelo, Mississippi — the hometown of Eight Days of Hope — local leaders saw firsthand the need for ministry immediately after a disaster strikes. We were inspired to take action. That’s how our Rapid Response Ministry was born – taking broken communities and planting hope in thousands of lives.
Eight Days of Hope is responding to Category 3 Hurricane Idalia that hit Southwest Florida, leaving a path of devastation in her wake. Join us in praying for so many who are without power, food, and shelter as the storm continues through the state, impacting hundreds of thousands of people.
Our Rapid Response Ministry and our Mass Feeding Ministries are deploying to Perry, FL, to love and serve those in need. Volunteer today!
