Flood recovery along the Arkansas River is ongoing, but another disaster occurred recently. Over the weekend, severe straight-line winds went through Northern Arkansas and affected Camp Siloam in a big way. They had 30 trees down, some very large, that they needed to be taken care of as quickly as possible – as they were expecting 790 campers today.
Disaster Relief deployed three chainsaw teams very quickly, which were able to help clear and make the camp functional today by 1 p.m., just in time for campers to show up.

Please continue to pray for those who have survived this flooding crisis, and for our volunteers who are putting in many hours of hard work. Say a prayer of thanks also for the volunteers who have left their home states to assist in Arkansas’s time of need.
Pray also for Camp Siloam as they continue to recover from the crisis over the weekend.
