AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE SANDY
Dear Ministry Leader,
On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy ripped across the northeast and many communities were hit hard. Lives were changed and some places will never be the same.
In the aftermath of the disaster, Group Mission Trips is working hard with our partners in communities affected by the storm. With your help, we will be serving people affected by Hurricane Sandy. Together, we may be able to help soon through a Big Day of Serving event. And during the summer, we will provide help and relief through our Workcamps mission trip program.
Exact dates and details are still being finalized. If you'd like to receive information on how you can bring aid and encouragement to people affected by Hurricane Sandy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your name on the list of people who will hear about these new service opportunities first.
We anticipate there will be much to do to serve those whose homes and lives were damaged by the hurricane. We also know that those who choose to serve in this way will have the chance to truly show Jesus' love as they bring hope to communities deeply affected by the storms.
We will be providing more information as quickly as we can. Remember - please email email@example.com to let us know you are interested in helping those in need because of Hurricane Sandy.
Serving in ministry together,
Group Mission Trips, The Big Day of Serving

God uses short term mission trips to change lives -- for the senders, the servers, and those being served. Mission trips are not only opportunities to serve "the least of these”, they deepen one's faith, develop humble servant hearts, inspire participants to love God's people and share His care for others through us.
The goal of the NED Short Term Mission Trips Coordinator is to educate, motivate, and activate the congregations of the NED for greater involvement in Short Term Mission Trips. The ultimate goal, based on the NED Blueprint for Missions is to have 50% of NED congregations participating in short term mission trips by 2013. Check out the new "Short Term Mission Trips" brochure and contact Barb Giger
at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to plan your first trip or expand your existing short term mission trip ministry.
