Everyone: I hope this finds you well and blessed. Here's the latest from the Virginia Conference Disaster Recovery ministry:
There is much work left to be done in the areas of fundraising and construction. Please prayerfully consider how you can be a part of our ministry. Here is a link to a post I made on Facebook about a woman we'll be helping in Evergreen, a woman who suffered great loss in the Feb. 24

Speaking at Your Church or District
It's a blessing for me to come speak at your church and share about missions and the Long-Term Recovery Ministry. I'm scheduling Sundays through the end of 2016. Also, I'm available during the week if you'd like to schedule something then.
As always, if you have questions or need information, don't hesitate to call on me.
One Last Call
It has been an amazing Summer for Virginia Conference short-term mission teams serving in the conference and beyond. Please let me know if your church has any short-term mission teams planned for the rest of August and beyond. I'll share your information on the Virginia UMVIM Facebook page
and invite everyone to pray for your team as it serves. News of your mission team experience might inspire others to serve as well.
I will be away Aug. 9-16
. Remember: Shaun will contact you about a week before your visit. If it's an emergency
. Otherwise, I will respond to your e-mail onAug. 17
Our challenge is big.
God is bigger.
We're in this together and, best of all, God is with us!
