Below is his appeal - please follow your heart and if you're able to be
of help, click on the related link on the website he has given in his message below:
(he sent the message quite a few days ago - am not sure if he has acquired the bus or van to use for local tours, but if you think your church may have one available, please respond on the website and he'll let you know.)
"We can use help picking up folks from the airport, escorts to rooms, and workshop room monitors. I am also in need of a Church Bus or Van to take folks on short tours on Wed. and Thurs morning.
We have developed this web site.
Thanks and God Bless
