We have contacted Samaritan's Purse and they do need help in Mississippi this weekend (they are full for next weekend).  It is short notice but if there are PAR volunteers that could join a team leaving tomorrow morning at 6:30a.m., we will go to south Mississippi to partner with SP in clean-up effort, specifically tree and debris removal and roof tarping. Part of the team will return late on Sunday; some may stay longer depending on the volunteers. If we have enough volunteers, PAR will coordinate the trip. If you can go, or if you need more information, please contact Danny Walker at 256-683-0482 or at walkerdanny@bellsouth.net.  ...
