Urgent Need in Appalachia

To be sure, this has been a winter to remember for those of us across North Carolina.  However, this is nothing in comparison with the horrific winter that the folks of eastern Kentucky have had to experience.  Several snow storms followed by heavy rain resulted in flooding and now mudslides.  The forecast is even less favorable this week as the already hyper-saturated ground is scheduled to receive an additional 3 inches of rainfall.  Roads have been washed out, homes have been destroyed, and some are still without water going into a second week.  If there has ever been a time when the people of this area need hope it is now.  If you have not considered making a Hope Box before, please do so now.  There is contact information available on the website as are directions for making a Hope Box.  If you would like to read more about the natural disasters currently facing eastern Kentucky, we offer this article concerning a mudslide that has occurred just blocks from where several of our teams will be staying this year.  Please pray for the people of Appalachia and for those who are already on the ground serving them.  http://harlandaily.com/news/home_top-news/152217324/Mudslide-wreaks-havoc
