When natural disasters hit and floods devastate a populated area the first on the scene for rescue and evacuation is the “Citizen Navy”, private owners of small watercraft who begin the process of saving lives and assisting with evacuations. In hurricanes and deeper water tragedy larger private watercraft join in immediately. Soon to follow the relief effort is a caravan of motor homes and trailer homes providing housing and support services and counseling to victims and recovery teams. Finally, volunteer and paid professionals with trucks and trailers deliver supplies, manpower and professional services to begin the rebuilding process. First Responders readily admit that without these voluntary citizen initiatives lives would be lost and restoration significantly delayed.
The same pattern of volunteer engagement works for tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires , and volcanic eruptions as well.
Citizens with travel and recreational lifestyles have created an important outreach ministry. Our recreational vehicle Disaster Service Ministry provides volunteer disaster services in times of need. Natural disasters and civil unrest, require a citizen rapid response network, willing to respond to citizens in need of life saving or life preserving services. Search, rescue, clean-up, repairs, counsel and prayer is facilitated by travel trailers, boats, trucks and service trailers and volunteers provide rescue, first-aid, clean-up, supply shipment, repair services, worker housing, victim housing, etc.
United Christians Church of America has operated since January of 2008 as a church in accordance with the US Constitution. As the central part of its ministry the church offers visitors online sermons and teachings from across America via www.UnitedChristiansChurch.com. The online ministry has delivered over 2.3-million sermons and teachings via posted teaching videos. Many citizens who need an online church, rather than a brick-and-mortar location, have travel related careers or lifestyles. The DSM outreach is a natural fit for the church.
All DSM members formally agree as a part of membership registration to become a DSMinistry participant and consider “calls to action” in times of need, locally or for distant disaster relief situations to save lives, participate in recovery, clean-up and reconstruction. Evangelism opportunity abounds as the recreational community of fun focused citizens becomes more aware of the life changing mission of Jesus Christ and how that applies to their personal life, right here and right now.
