“And the King will answer them, ‘I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’” Matthew 25:40 (HCSB)
Serving in disaster relief offers Chuck Neece the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus in areas of great need.
Neece is director of operations for KNCSB Disaster Relief and director of disaster relief for Kansas City, Kan., Baptist Association.
By serving people who have been hit by disasters, Neece has opportunities to serve the Lord by using his unique life skills.
“In one location I found myself using my Iowa farm boy skills to repair flood-damaged fencing so a farmer could allow his goats to pasture again!
“In another location we found ourselves helping a person sort through antiques and art that needed to be salvaged from flooded property. Each piece brought out of the basement was a story that was shared,” Neece said.
“Each disaster has been an opportunity to meet people at a time in their life that they have felt shaken and some have nearly lost hope. It is a reminder of Matthew 25:31-46.”
While serving in Disaster Relief, “It is so much easier to be a witness, as survivors want to know why you are traveling to help them,” Neece said.
“There are many opportunities to witness while traveling as well as your very presence opens doors to speak with people at gas stations, restaurants and rest stops.”
Chuck Neece and KNCSB Disaster Relief volunteers put Matthew 25 into action as they serve people in great need.
