When Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast in 2005, I.D.E.S. (International Disaster Emergency Service) created a new program called DART. This program would position Disaster Assistance Response Teams across the United States. These teams would be equipped and trained to answer the call of help during natural disasters. The ultimate purpose of a DART team is to lead others to Christ by showing them His love in action. The primary method of doing this is by responding to those in need nationally and locally.
For victims of a disaster, whether it is a flood, fire, tornado, hurricane, earthquake, or winter storm the situation is often overwhelming. The destruction can seem so random, so complete, so personal, that it can be difficult to decide where to start. When Christians come to the aid of these suffering people, we can offer more than just help cleaning up the mess from the storm. We can also offer an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, and a hand to hold. We can offer help, hope, encouragement, and the promise of a better day. We can offer help cleaning up the mess of their lives by offering the love of Jesus Christ.
