Brethren Disaster Ministries Update

Posted April 9th, 2018

The St. Thomas Virgin Islands disaster recovery project has scheduled three work periods: June 17-30, September 9-22, and December 2-15.

There are 12 spots open each of the 2-week periods for volunteers from all districts on a first come basis. Housing, transportation, tools and meals will be provided during these 2-week time periods. Volunteers must be able to work in warm climates and some of the work during the June trip will likely include mucking and gutting homes.

Partial reimbursement of airfare will be made available for persons who cannot fund their own travel.

Please contact Bud and Susan Taylor if you are interested.

Many thanks to Western Plains volunteers who served at the BDM site in Eureka, Missouri, which closed at the end of March. A new site working with UMCOR on Hurricane Matthew recovery in North Carolina has opened. Both the South Carolina and North Carolina sites will be housed at First Presbyterian Church In Lumberton, NC.  Our district has no plans to take a group, but if you are interested, please contact us as well.

BDM does anticipate that there will be volunteer opportunities in Puerto Rico, but dates have not been set.
