The Kenneth Copeland Ministries Disaster Relief team searched for Partners and Friends amidst the terrible devastation that was Joplin, Mo. Pastor and Mrs. James Forde tell of their experience.

“We’ve never gone for cover before. The siren went off and it just kept going, and it just kept going and it kept going. I spoke to my husband that maybe we might need to go to the basement,” said Mrs. Forde. Her husband pastors Word of Life Fellowship. The Forde’s live near the hospital that sustained so much damage. Their only loss was an interruption of electrical service. They really believe they came through this disaster because of God’s protection and Kenneth and Gloria Copeland’s teachings on having faith in God.

The Kenneth Copeland Ministries Disaster Relief team was in Joplin looking for Partners and Friends. Steve Poteet and the other members of the team wanted to make sure people were safe and see if they needed anything. It’s not an easy task to find people when the neighborhoods have collapsed and the street signs are gone. But Steve and the team continued to search for people in the affected area. Steve continued, “One person can’t do much, but together we are a force to be reckoned with. This ministry is all about Partners helping Partners.”
