World Compassion Network is sending a small team to Moore, OK early tomorrow. Greg Rauen, WCN Disaster Relief Coordinator, will be taking our 70,000 watt generator, disaster relief supplies and other needed items to victims of the devastating tornados that ripped through the Oklahoma City area. We are also scheduling a tractor trailer load of food and water.
Our prayers are with each and every person affected. This is a major disaster area with over 30 square miles of destruction, many people are displaced and suffering. We will post future plans and needs soon. If you would like to help us with expenses or possible future work teams please click on one of the following links. Your prayers are desired as we coordinate our response efforts. Thank you!

Please join all of us at WCN as we pray for the victims of the EF4 tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma. Moore is located just south of Oklahoma City and is about 870 miles from Warsaw. We have contacts in the area now that are doing an assessment for us. We will keep you informed of our response – keep checking back!
World Compassion Network (WCN) volunteers and staff helped residents deal with flooding issues around Pike and Irish Lakes. We also met up with Jeffrey “Hoss” Smith and volunteers from Serenity House while placing sand bags. WCN’s water (trash) pumps were utilized by keeping water from entering a home and pumping water out of another.
Lots of the people we helped were elderly or widowed. Responding to people in distress because of flooding of their property/homes fits our compassion ministry and mission. We are so thankful to our volunteers and supporters who enable us to help others. We are always looking for people that would like to be on our “On Call Volunteer” list.

We are grateful to live in such a compassionate community and we give God glory for every step that was taken.

Your prayers and donations enable us to respond to disasters locally, nationally, and internationally. We have served several thousand victims of disasters by sending food, cleaning supplies and hygiene products. Some of you have stepped out in faith and went on mission trips that changed your life. Many of you have supported us by running in our annual Run/Walk for Hunger. Your gifts of support enable us to be the hands and feet of Christ. We are totally honored and humbled by your love and caring. We appreciate you so much. Thank you.

Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world
These are the words of the 16th Century Roman Catholic Saint and Carmelite nun, Teresa of Avila (1515-82).
WCN has changed our office location. We are now located on the corner of 400 N. and State Road 15 N. We get to share a great facility with two other awesome ministries: ICDI – a ministry that is dedicated to drilling wells, agricultural development, education and proclaiming the Gospel to the poor in Africa (www.icdinternational.org) and Headwaters (Scott Turskey) – another ministry that provides spiritual healing, discipleship, and mentoring. We feel so blessed. We would like to send out a special thanks to Silveus Insurance and ICDI for their generosity. We would also like to thank each one of you who supports us either by prayer or by donations.
We wanted to take a moment to thank all of our supporters and update you on our status. It has been an incredibly busy few weeks and we are so grateful for the continued response from our donors. The funds, goods, time and prayers that you have given continue to open up doors for us to share the love of Jesus with people in their most desperate time of need. In this moment of tragedy for so many, we are thankful to have the opportunity to reflect God’s love as we continue to put our faith into action.

Many people think of God as such an awesome powerful God and cannot imagine His grieving over our suffering and pain. The opposite is true. God cares for us deeply to the point of joining us in our distress. He actually feels for us as we would our sick child. One of God’s most powerful characteristics is compassion. As we mature in our life with God, we need to take on His characteristics. That is why we say you are never more like God than when you are showing compassion towards those who are suffering from poverty and disasters.
The very word compassion means "to suffer together, to be involved in other peoples suffering to the point of taking action to help".
