KCM’s Disaster Relief team just returned from Tupelo, Miss., where a tornado damaged much of the city on April 28, 2014. Immediately following the tornado, the team was on the scene, checking on Partners and providing assistance. Of course, complete recovery can take a long time—both physically and spiritually—so, when the team returned the last week of July 2014 to prepare for The REACH event, the signs of rebuilding were evident throughout the city.
In partnership with Feed the Children and Pastors Anthony and Dell Hatch of Faith Bible Church, the Kenneth Copeland Ministries Disaster Relief team returned to host the first back-to-school REACH event to provide families that are still rebuilding and recovering with groceries and household necessities, as well as backpacks filled with school supplies for their children.
THE REACH is an outreach of Kenneth Copeland Ministries with Riley Stephenson, KCM’s Minister of Evangelism. The mission of this outreach is to provide physical needs for families still recovering from disaster, along with meeting them where they are spiritually with encouragement, love and most importantly JESUS!
Four hundred families received THREE boxes of food and household necessities to fill their pantries. Eight hundred children received a FREE BACKPACK FILLED WITH SCHOOL SUPPLIES. But most importantly over 1,000 people attended the service and heard the WORD of the Lord and 101 PEOPLE RECEIVED JESUS as their personal Lord and Savior! Praise God!
Natural disaster can be devastating to people—even if they already know the Lord—but our hope is to leave everyone we meet with the love of the Father, a new hope for the future, and the assurance that they are not forgotten and that “JESUS IS LORD!” over any circumstance they face.
Together, we’re changing lives and making a REAL difference
Increasing His Kingdom,
The KCM Disaster Relief Team
