Greetings with an update from East Nashville, Tennessee
This past Sunday, March 8, a team of eight Northland Disaster Response members departed at 6 a.m. for Nashville, Tennessee in response to the tornado that crossed a 50-mile path causing severe damage and loss of life. We arrived after a long 14-hour drive but prayers were answered and we experienced no problems.
Monday we began cooking meals for the community and workers. Our first day we provided 400 hot meals for lunch and dinner that were delivered out into the community. We are continuing to provide meals to multiple areas as we are made aware of the needs.
Yesterday as we delivered we encountered one police officer who allowed us to cross the barricades to hand out meals. You can imagine our surprise as we handed a worker a meal and his gratefulness as he reported he was headed home after working 14 straight hours to a can of cold soup.
We are blessed with power, showers, and sleeping quarters at the church which is just two blocks away from some of the devastation.
Our devotions this morning says it all:
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another. - John 13:35
We so appreciate your prayers and support as we continue to provide here in Nashville.
