From June 28, 2011 …

June 28, 2011 – The record-high water levels currently flooding Minot’s valley have damaged 4,100 homes and forced thousands of people to seek refuge on higher ground with friends, family, and in emergency shelters. While many families were able to move their belongings from their home before evacuating, countless others had to leave some or everything behind. OSLC had reached out to members of the congregation as well as the community who are flood evacuees by providing shelter, moving people, supplying food and coordinating needs. OSLC volunteers continue to serve daily meals for the EOC (Emergency Operations Center).

The wait for the waters to recede will be several weeks, after which displaced homeowners must begin to assess the damage to their homes. Church members from several states are preparing to come to Minot to assist in the recovery. Cleanup of salvageable houses will be a long, arduous task that could take several months. Displaced families will need temporary housing as well as clothing, food, and personal items during this time.

Please take time to lift the people of Minot before the Lord Jesus in your prayers. Thank you.
