Brethren Disaster Ministries trip to Colorado planned for April

Published on Mar 17th, 2016 by wpd-office | 0

Western Plains District has agreed to fill the week of April 24-30 at the Loveland, Colorado project through Brethren Disaster Ministries. Four more volunteers are needed for a full group. Because of sleeping quarter arrangements, these four volunteers need to be all men or all women. If you are interested in going on the trip, please contact Western Plains BDM coordinators Bud and Susan Taylor by email at

Western Plains is excited to share that a group of McPherson College students will be heading out to this BDM project to spend their spring break. Jen Jensen, Director of Spiritual Life and Service at the college, is organizing the trip. Thank you for your service!Major flooding occurred when up to 20 inches of rain fell in northern Colorado in September of 2013. Five rivers became raging torrents that destroyed 1,882 homes and left 5,566 others with major damage in Weld, Larimer, and Boulder Counties.

The type of work in Colorado includes major repairs from flood damage such as floors, insulation, drywall, porches, etc. Some complete rebuilds are possible, as well as repairs to mobile homes. BDM receives its cases from our local long-term recovery partners. Tools and project leadership are provided.
