Service in Florida
During the first portion of this years journey, The missionaries went to Florida to support disaster relief, working with the International Relief Friendship Foundation (IRFF) and the Christian Disaster Response (CDR) from October 1~8.
The group first received a day of training with Dr. Ron Patterson, a former Christian pastor and now the head of Christian Disaster Response. After the training they went off to the more remote areas of Florida that were hit by hurricane Irma. They focused on gathering information door to door from the hurricane disaster victims, and assessing their needs – such as food, medicine, housing and then sending the information to ARC(American Red Cross) and FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). The group also supported local families in need by removing debris and fallen trees from yards and homes.
