This episode is dedicated to Disaster Response in the Great Plains Conference. This year has seen some of the most devastating natural disasters in recent memory across the Great Plains, from catastrophic flooding throughout much of Nebraska and parts of Kansas to powerful tornadoes. The Rev. Hollie Tapley, disaster response coordinator for the conference, fills us in on recent volunteer efforts, what it takes to become an Early Response Team member, and what she has learned over many years in disaster response ministry.
Titled “Harvesting the Great Plains," our monthly program about discipleship draws inspiration from Mathew 9:37, which states “The size of the harvest is bigger than you can imagine, but there are few workers.” Each show features interviews with someone who is helping with the harvest so we can make more disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Some episodes feature stories about people, churches or organizations making a difference.
