Big Sandy Family Conference April 2017

Have the Alert troops ever actually gone out and helped someone?  That's not snark, it's actual curiosity.  If so, was their help useful?  I remember the Duggars once showed up at a town that had been hit by a tornado and all they did was get in the way.

They may have been worse than Steven Seagal when he showed up after Hurricane Katrina to make it all about himself.

Why do you need a pack that freaking huge for a three hour hike? Also, seeing as they're a religious extremist paramilitary group that recruits impressionable young men who want a sense of purpos

Is that the Fundy Family equivalent of "we took it to a farm upstate where it has room to run and play with all of its new friends"?

IIRC, they have gone to help.  As far as it being useful...who knows.  I'm sure they try to channel Jesus with fervor, and encourage the victims that said channeling will work and please join in.  I doubt they'd know what to do if they encountered a woman needing help who wasn't fully dressed.

I've been wondering if they showed up to help.  Can't imagine the magnitude of the cleanup required. 

What would really happen (satirically): ATI guys arrive in polo shirts, khaki pants and perfectly sprayed hair. They take loads of photos helping people.

Then once the photoshoot is over, they bring in a busload of girls in long khaki skirts to do the actual cleanup. No photos are taken.

From the ALERT website:

 

Yesterday we sent a team of 15 with Samaritans Purse to begin recovery efforts in the Victoria, TX, area, west of Houston. Presently there is no power, limited fuel, and minimal places to buy food but we are trusting God to send along co-laborers in the area to help support us in those area. We will also be taking supplies not only for ourselves but to help workers who are ministering to others.

The question has often come up “What can we do to help?” Let me make several suggestions:

Pray earnestly for all these victims. Especially pray that this would be a time when they cry out to God not only for provision but for salvation.

If you would like to make a donation specifically for disaster and deployment work you can designate it and it will be earmarked for such. It is very likely we will be making a number of trips to southeast Texas in the months ahead to help with recovery. Your gifts will cover all transportation and related costs for such deployments. Any gifts not designated would go to our general fund.

Consider a gift to Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Relief.  We have been networking with them for a number of years and they have blessed us greatly by providing housing, meals, equipment and work orders, making the logistical end of our deployments run seamlessly."

 

So the answer is they show up with supplies for themselves and "minister," and if you want to help, pray for people and send ALERT money. About what you'd expect

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
          
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
