In the wake of superstorm Sandy, meteorologists are predicting a Nor'easter to threaten the northeastern United States starting Wednesday. Although current reports indicate that the storm is moving further offshore and will likely not be as intense as originally anticipated, heavy rains and winds will still be a factor for this already battered region.

Dear Church Family,
Over the past few weeks, I have been visiting HOPE worldwide programs in Nigeria and India. My schedule has been packed, but I wanted to say how very proud I am of the many wonderful volunteers of HOPE worldwide who have stepped forward to serve those in need in the Northeast.
HOPE worldwide's Community Service Division is actively responding to the disaster Hurricane Sandy. Immediately following the storm, volunteers from HOPE worldwide's Central Jersey and Tri-State Chapters began assisting in disaster relief efforts with our partners, including the American Red Cross.
