Hope Force has already begun staging at a safe location. Joey Stoltzfus, Hope Force Director of Disaster Operations, and three others are currently en route to Starkville, MS, to wait until it is safe to move on into Louisiana.
At the writing of this alert, Hope Force is responding simultaneously to four separate disasters. The devastating 7.2 earthquake in Haiti, deadly flooding in Waverly, TN, Hurricane Grace’s aftermath in Mexico, and the anticipated impact zone of one of the most powerful storms in history -- Hurricane Ida. In the midst of this, we are reminded of our dependency on God and the great gift of relationships through our partnership network.
Currently, we are on the ground in Haiti with our longtime partner, Crossroads Church of Cincinnati in these early operations and assessment stage for Hurricane Ida. Joey Stoltzfus is joined by three members of their Initial Response Team. This partnership brings strength and courage in the throes of such a demanding set of circumstances. Our efforts rely heavily upon our networking with other like-minded organizations.
