    Simonds Chapel                                     have a passion to serve others. Disaster response is a unique mis-
        Snowhill                                      sion experience because of the sudden nature of the event, difficult
        Southend                                      conditions, and high expectations from non faith-based groups and
        Swanson                                          survivors. We often say that after your first response you will
      Sweetwater                                      either love the relief ministry or hate it. We hope God calls you to
                                                         this type of ministry and that you exercise that calling through
