Now that Hurricane Matthew is gone, Adventures is currently strategizing relief efforts to the Caribbean and the East Coast. Sign up below to stay connected with relief efforts and to be the first to know when relief trips are posted!
WHEN DISASTER HITS, WE RESPOND.
Adventures in Missions responds to both domestic and international disasters, from neighbors next door to friends on the other side of the world. Because needs differ with each disaster's location and intensity, our agile response efforts fill the gaps, meeting needs other relief organizations can't or don't meet.
You can join us the next time disaster hits. To be on our first responder list and be informed of potential disaster relief opportunities, sign up on the right.

Last week, Hurricane Matthew blasted through Jamaica, Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas, and the East Coast of the United States, leaving destruction in its wake. Over 1000 are dead in Haiti alone. Thousands of homes across the Caribbean and southeastern coast of the United States were destroyed.
Currently, floodwaters in the US are slowly dissipating and residents of the eastern seaboard are returning home to fully discover the extent of the damage to their homes and property.
Adventures is strategizing what our relief efforts will look like across the East Coast and into the Caribbean. We are connected with ministry partners in Haiti, Cuba, and Hilton Head, and are prayerfully exploring all possibilities in setting up trips.
Please continue to be in prayer for everyone impacted by Hurricane Matthew, and for those involved in relief efforts. To remain updated of news or upcoming trips, sign up for email alerts.

Nearly three billion people were affected by natural disasters in the last decade. In this video, Jerri shares her story of one life devastated, one life restored. This is why we show up— to be the hands and feet of Jesus, to build homes, hope, and an open door for the Gospel.
About the Relief Fund:
Given the unpredictable nature of these disasters, precious time is lost when making efforts to raise funds while victims are already in desperate need. That's why we have created a general Disaster Response Fund allowing us to respond immediately to disasters as they are happening.
As we continue to make you aware of the ways you can help when these events occur, consider supporting the Disaster Response Fund throughout the year so resources are available for our teams to act immediately when unexpected disasters hit.
