Aloha volunteers, I am keeping us on ALERT! The Governor has placed Big Island and Maui on a Hurricane watch and the rest of the State tonight or tomorrow. Please continue monitoring the storm and get your preparedness kits ready if you have to evacuate to a shelter.
Pastors, be ready for a possible influx of people in your community wanting to come to your church for shelter, it could be a reality.
Tie down all loose things around the church and your home, bring in lawn furniture and stuff that could be a flying hazard. Check on your neighbor, especially our Kupuna. Know where your shelter is before the storm. Coastal homes, especially on South and West facing shores, be ready for high surf and rising water.
Please share with all church members, as this only goes out to DR trained volunteers.
The motivation behind Southern Baptist Disaster Relief efforts can be summed up in one phrase. “A cup of cold water in Jesus’ name.” Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is following the example Jesus established when He fed 5,000 and the 4,000 and His teachings in the parable of the Good Samaritan and Matthew 25:31-46.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is Christian love in action. It is meeting the urgent needs of hurting humanity in crisis situations with loving care and a timely response as James 2:15-16 instructs us to do.
The Southern Baptist Disaster Relief logo incorporates two types of ministry, physical and spiritual, exemplified by Christ.
Hawaii Hurricane Season starts June 1st through November 30th. However the weather does not know we have a time frame! Weather can happen anytime especially here in Hawaii. It is time to update or start your preparedness kits.
I have a link to our Family Preparedness Manual that will help you prepare for all disasters. Remember in Hawaii and the Pacific you should have fourteen days of food, water and supplies instead of three days for the mainland.
