Cleanup, recovery still happening in southwest Georgia

1/7/2019

A few weeks ago, Allison Lindsey, associate director of connectional ministries, was among a team of conference leaders who traveled to southwest Georgia to assess the ongoing Hurricane Michael recovery efforts and welcome North Georgia bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson and a North Georgia Conference work team plus a South Georgia Conference work team, to the area.

“There’s so much that has been done, but there’s still so much left to do,” she said in a disaster response video update. “The work doesn’t stop here.

“Thank you, South Georgia, for all that you have done,” she said, “for providing resources, funds, health kits, cleaning buckets, generators, for housing teams, for attending trainings … but the work continues, so keep on keeping on. There’s still so much work to do. ”

Lindsey encouraged South Georgia churches to invite a Connectional Ministries representative or a district disaster response coordinator to share with their congregation the Connecting Neighbors curriculum which helps churches discover their resources and how they can be engaged in their communities in the event of a disaster.

“We’re in it for the long haul,” Lindsey said. “We will continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in these communities.”
