WV water crisis 2

Are YOU Ready?

BE PREPARED:  The situation in West Virginia was obviously not expected.  Disasters can occur anywhere whether they are natural, terrorist, or industrial.  Is your community ready?  Do you have a plan in place?  The attitude that “it won’t happen to us” is prevalent and detrimental.  Contact us to get trained in how to serve your neighbors in times of disaster.  We will make sure you have a plan ready to execute and you will be in our network to receive needed supplies and manpower when the time comes.

Accepting college alternative spring break teams, youth group mission trips and of course huge need for skilled workers.   We provide housing and coordinate work.  At all current sites you will have a kitchen to prepare your own meals.  Encourage you to sign up early (especially for larger groups) as space is limited.  
Current Destinations:
  • MOORE, OKLAHOMA – This is the area of largest capacity (up to 200 at a time).  They are just now beginning the rebuilding phase from the tornado that destroyed homes and families.  Suggest you bring at least one skilled person as this will open up more possibilities for your team.

  • LAPLACE, LOUISIANA – Rebuilds still underway from hurricane two years ago.  Teams up to 30 of must be mostly skilled adults. 
It hasn’t gotten a lot of press but the water crisis in WV is not over.  300,000 people could not use there water for over a week due to a chemical spill – schools and businesses were closed.  People already living on the poverty line didn’t get paid.  Now they say the water is “safe”.  Yet there are hundreds of reports of sludge and slime still in the water, chemical burns, and a multitude of other illnessess after the ban was lifted.  CitiIMPACT was called by the EOC within 15 minutes of the ban asking for help.  We were able to send in 300 tons of water, 15 semi trailers worth.  Some of that was in partnership with NFL player Randy Moss who is from WV and wanted to give back.  Please continue to keep them in your prayers.    DONATE TO GIVE WATER

Don’t Donate to CitiIMPACT..unless..

that’s right…DON”T Donate to CitiIMPACT….unless…  HOPE live in Him

1-You value & believe in partnership

2-You want your donation multiplied many times above its face value

3-You want to make a sustainable impact

4-You value that people need a hand up, not just a hand out

OK, you get the point: CitiIMPACT Ministries serves children, families & communities with HOPE, helping them overcome at-risk situations. We do this by forging collaborative partnerships  bringing more resources together, multiplying efforts & sustainable impact.

Yes, WE NEED & VALUE YOUR PARTNERSHIP FINANCIALLY! Here is JUST ONE testimony of how your donation did or could work in a community: It’s one of hundreds we could give you. Pastor Kirk Pankratz, Church of the Harvest in Oklahoma City, was one of the lead churches we are partnering with in the Moore OK Tornado Response; a church of 5 campuses.

“When the disastrous weather hit our state back in May 2013, we had no idea how COH OKCour church – Church of the Harvest – would be able to play a part in the rebuild efforts.  We just knew one thing – we had to help.  Immediately, we began to develop partnerships with local churches, disaster organizations and ministries that have an impact locally and around the world.  CitiIMPACT is one of those organizations we have been privileged to partner with and we are so grateful for the value they add to this massive rebuild effort.  I use the word COH OKC 2“massive” because this entire effort to rebuild these affected communities is far beyond just one church or one disaster organization.  Some say it could take over five years for the affected areas to be fully rebuilt.  With the help of CitiIMPACT, over two dozen semi-loads of key supplies have been given out and used to help assist families.  Thousands of meals were prepared and given out to victims and the countless volunteers that have been COH OKC 3committed to this journey.  CitiIMPACT leader – J.D. Smith – has been a key individual in introducing us to various people and organizations focused on disaster response both locally and nationally.  He has actually continued with us in Oklahoma City for the past six months since the storms hit and that has proven to be invaluable to our team.  There are countless stories of victims – both individuals and families – that have been able to be fed, receive clothing, household goods and supplies to help them rebuild their lives.  Thank you so much to J.D. and our friends at CitiIMPACT!  We look forward to continuing this relationship and journey to see total restoration come to these strong communities.”

“Mommy, Hold Me!”

One Month. Ashley and Jason S., and their two children, have been surviving the horrific tornado that struck Moore, Oklahoma on May 20, 2013. Last week, as I sat with them face to face Ashley recounted being in the storm shelter that saved her children Andrew (11) and Jacob (6), as the tornado roared overhead. Sylvesters

“We held hands and prayed for Jesus to help us no matter what happens. Andrew cried out, “Mommy, Hold Me!”, sobbed Ashley. Andrew has aspergers and has never before asked to be held, which is common with his symptoms.

Her whole house blew down around them. Yet, they are ALIVE! Sylvester House

Recounts Jason just last night, “My family and I were in a state of disbelief”. That was made even further difficult in that Jason was in Afghanistan at the time of the tornado. It took him 5 days to get home. His entire home was destroyed, except just a few possessions. Yet his beloved family did survive with their lives, in a storm shelter in what was once their garage. He adds, “A normal day in Oklahoma, in just a few minutes Oklahoma Elementarysuddenly turned into the single most life-changing event in our family history. We felt helpless and overwhelmed, but most of all blessed that we had made it through the tornado with our lives.”

Mission Team in Oklahoma“Today”, he goes on, “we’re cleaning up the few items we could salvage and are gaining a sense of hope.  With help of therapy and love from CitiIMPACT Mission Teams, our children are slowly beginning more normal levels of activity. We’re still overwhelmed with all that has to be done, but remain optimistic the future holds stability for our family.”

Because of your efforts with CitiIMPACT, many such stories of HOPE and HELP arise from the destruction of natural disasters, and the disasters of life in general. Please continue to Support and BE Part of the efforts with us for those who need “a sense of hope”. Together we are reaching families like Jason’s in several states right now.

Be and ACT like this, another young man named Andrew long ago:

Mark 1:16 “As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said,“and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.”

Blessings to you today!

West, Texas and Boston and…

We’re all living in some very chaotic times, as we were up all night with the newest disaster in West, Texas. The rise of evil and terrible tragedies truly seems to be coming at an increasing rate. It’s as if evil is being made to seem to be good and good to be evil. I urge you to go to one of the ultimate warrior stances of perhaps all time. There are some Sparks in the Dark as we stand strong together.

Ephesians 6:10-18 We all need this, truly.
The attached video of Amanda Thatcher reflects that (the text follows the video):

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God,so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

May the Lord bless us all with His Peace again, one and all. After all, Love will conquer all.

Sparks in the Dark

I want to be like Martin in promoting PEACE, a true to life, and in death, Spark in the Dark. He’s a great example of “What Love’s Got To Do With It“.
