We have moved on to Oneonta, AL, an area that was hit by 2 tornados. Please keep us in your prayers that we would remain faithful to the call on our lives as we help those here and once again attempt to Make Jesus' Name Known.
We have been busy getting Mountain Pointe Ministries Church ready to house volunteers. We added a shower and sink to the church, and worked on the electric and internet access. We tarped 3 homes and one barn before the rains set in, assessed several homes and have begun clearing trees.
Doug from the Apison, TN area, Brian from Sarasota, and Ed from Brooklyn have joined us and we are expecting Lee and Pam from NC later this week. Next week, Darren and some of the guys from CC Chattanooga will be here. So far we've got a great team but could use you so contact us if you want to be part of our team!
We also looked at an area south of here that was hit by a tornado and hasn't had any help yet. If we get enough help and/or finish up here, we'll more than likely go there to help a little.
We could really use a Bobcat type skid steer to help us move debris. We thought we had several available to us and one by one they all fell through. Please pray that God would provide one or the funds for us to rent one.
It's getting warm as summer approaches. It was 94 in the sun today so pray for cloud coverage, no rain, low humidity and plenty of cool breezes!
Thanks for all your prayers and support.

The work is going well as we continue to work on the Bible College and CC San Julian.
CC Downey was out again to help us and really blessed all once again as much was done both physically and spiritually once again by this team. I’m getting stronger Doctor says the back is starting to heal, and ribs are beginning to settle as well, and really hoping to be able to go over in late June once again. Thanks for all your prayers and support.
God Bless! Gerry Brown (Uturn for Christ)
After spending 7 months in Colorado, Curtis and Mary Jo Hencye (From CC Sarasota) are heading to Alabama to help in relief efforts after last weeks tornados.
We are headed to Oneonta, AL, the home of our friend Patrick, a Church of God Chaplain who we have served with in the past. Our good friend Doug from Apison, TN who we have served with a few different times, is already on the ground and setting things up. From what we've been told, no agencies or other relief teams have shown up yet. According to state officials, it is the worst hit area of the state, but very little has been done to help these folks yet.
The area had 2 tornados earlier this week, an EF-1 and an EF-3. Over 100 homes have been damaged with a little over 30 of them totally gone. There is a lot of work to be done and we need your help to make it happen! We already have a place to house volunteers and work orders ready to be filled.
If you can join us, please let us know as soon as possible. We also need to get a Bobcat and will need fuel for it. If you can help with the finances of this trip, please go to their web site at:
