AIBDE Mission Trip to Beaver Crossing is a success!

Five people from the parish ABIDE team (Mary Hass [Ithaca UMC], Pastor Brian & Jeanne Kottas, Tim Kubicek [Ceresco UMC], Aaron Johnson [Ithaca UMC]) plus Bill Lange from the Ceresco UMC went to the Beaver Crossing area today. We canvassed the area to assess what kind of help people need as well as work that needs to be done after the Mother’s Day tornado. Our group plus 2 gentlemen from a Lutheran church in Lincoln canvassed 25 sections outside of Beaver Crossing. We spoke to a lot of people and saw extensive damage that is still left after the storm. Work has started on some farms (rebuilding, new roofs, etc.) and work still needs to be done (picking up debris, windows needing replaced, siding replaced, roofs patched, houses rebuilt, etc.) All the information that we collected was given to the Disaster Relief Center that operates out of the Beaver Crossing United Methodist Church.
