We are making connections to go to Nebraska and help with the cleanup.  At this point it looks like we will check in with people each week and see where they want us to go.  Right now they are just working on the destruction and clean out, as the water is still expected to rise in some areas.  We have a few ideas for housing, so when we here where we are needed most we will make those arrangements.  So if you are able to go and spend a few days to clean out and clean up please let me know.  I am going to try to coordinate from here with contacts there.  We are raising funds to help where we can.  I know that there are meetings with leaders from the area about what they need, and where they need it most.  At this point they are cleaning out, and then they have to let it air out and dry before they will know the extent of the damage.  They are not rebuilding, it is all just clean up and clean out at this point.  If you have questions, or you know a time when you will be able to go please call me and I will find a place to send you with a place to stay too.  Amy Goepfert who is from Milroy works at a church in Omaha and is helping with the coordination, as is Bill and Jo Peterson from Osceola.  We are hopeful to get a crew going soon!  Pr.
