DISASTER RELIEF NEEDS YOU!
 

LATELY DISASTER RELIEF VOLUNTEERS HAVE BEEN IN

HIGH DEMAND. SO MANY STORM RELATED EVENTS

RECENTLY HAVE GREATLY INCREASED THE NEED FOR DR

VOLUNTEERS. TWIN RIVERS HAVE DR TRAILERS EQUIPPED

FOR ALL MANNER OF DISASTERS AVAILABLE TO TAKE TO A

SITE. ALL THIS TOP OF THE LINE EQUIPMENT IS NO GOOD

WITHOUT DR VOLUNTEERS TO USE THEM, OFTEN TIMES WE

GET A CALL OUT FOR A NEED AND ARE UNABLE TO

HELP DUE TO THE LACK OF TRAINED VOLUNTEERS. I

WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO PRAYERFULLY

CONSIDER THIS MISSION FIELD.

  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT MORE GIVE US A CALL AT THE OFFICE OR CHECK OUT THE DISASTER RELIEF PAGE AT WWW.MOBAPTIST.ORG THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXCERPT FROM THEIR PAGE. BECOMING A DISASTER RELIEF VOLUNTEER PROVIDES AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY FOR HANDS ON SERVICE TO PEOPLE IN NEED. TRAINING IS OPEN TO ANY MEMBER OF A SOUTHERN BAPTIST CHURCH WHO IS AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE. ATTENDING TRAINING DOES NOT OBLIGATE YOU TO SERVE BUT IS NECESSARY BEFORE SERVING.
 
 
 
International Mission Work right here in St. Louis. Link to website
Zechariah 7:9-10 (NIV)“This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’
 

Helping refugees from war torn countries who have relocated to St. Louis. Fewer than 10% will be befriended by an American, much less by our Christian Churches. Oasis is changing this statistic they help these families get started in practical ways with furniture household items and clothes. List of needed DONATIONS

 One couple from FBC Lake St. Louis, Bill and Joan Dotson have started working with Oasis International to assist Refuges. Joan is a past WMU President for Missouri and Bill serves on our Twin Rivers Mission committee. They have started doing international missions less than an hour from their home. Oasis International is located in South St. Louis with a mission to help refuges coming to the St. Louis area. Bill and Joan have visited in the home of refugees. Drove them to appointments. Helped with English and many other basic things for families just coming to our countries.
 
There are many opportunities to serve, one day a week, or one day a month. Sorting clothes, driver tests, helping to teach English or even providing child care for mothers going thru English classes. Oasis International is run by Mark and Joani Akers. Their web site is oasis4refugees.org. Wouldn't it be great if many of our Twin River churches could get involved? Give us a call.

Core Issues: Abortion, Human cloning and human embryonic

stem cell research, infanticide, euthanasia and assisted

suicide.

 

Legislation: MRL has drafted and helped to pass legislation

that bans partial-birth and webcam abortions, prevents public

funding of abortion services, human cloning and embryonic

stem cell research; ensures that women are provided

information about their baby’s development, the opportunity

to view an ultrasound, and a minimum 72-hour reflection

period after receiving such information; also: provides tax

credits for donations to charities serving pregnant women in

crisis and funding for alternatives to abortion services;

ensures that every person is given life-preserving healthcare

and has the right to the highest attainable standard of

healthcare without discrimination.

 

Political Action: Known for two of the state’s most active and

successful political action committees, the MRL PAC informs

Missourians about their legislators’ voting records and

candidates’ positions on pro-life issues.

 

Education: MRL offers life-affirming videos, books, speakers,

and resources to Missourians. Exhibits at County Fairs in the

summer.

 

Grassroots Success: Through local MRL chapters, members
