As Hurricane Ida made landfall on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, The Salvation Army is prepared to meet immediate needs of food, clothing, clean-up kits, and emotional and spiritual care.
Emergency Disaster Services Director of The Salvation Army’s Southern Territory, Jeff Jellets said, “We are positioned to provide immediate assistance to those in the path of the storm and have access to a substantial network of resources which can be activated as soon as it’s needed.
Right now, the best way to support response efforts is by making a financial contribution. This allows necessary items to be purchased and ensures disaster survivors and first responders receive assistance quickly,”
Over 140,000 meals are already prepared and more than 50 mobile feeding units are ready for deployment. Each unit can serve between 500 and 1,500 meals per day.

Today we launch a new series called CRAFTED. Throughout this series we will be speaking with different artists of various mediums and learning about their passion and how they use their art as an act of worship. In this first episode we are joined by Nick Simmons-Smith. He is a musician, performer, and composer with The Salvation army.
In this episode we were joined by Salvation Army officers, Captains Cheryl and Nesan Kistan. They sat down with Major Jerry Friday for a round table discussion on missions and so much more. The Kistans are corps officers in Tustin Ranch, California. But Nesan also serves as Chair of the National Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity Commission for The Salvation Army as well. These two had some powerful insights and even shared a bit of their own testimonies with us during their time in our studio.
As we near the end of our series on missions, we are joined by Colonels Kelly and Donna Igleheart. A question every missionary needs to ask at some point is, “What are the risks?” God did not call us to safety but to be His hands and feet all over the world. How do we weigh the risks and reward?
In this episode, Lt. Colonel Karol Seiler is joined by former Young Adult and Mission Deployment Coordinator, Jovanie Smith. In this conversation, these two discuss the benefits and possible pitfalls of short-term missions.
Continuing the topic from last week, in this episode we ask the same question- but how do we do this from leading worship and the arts? In this round-table discussion, Bernie Dake is joined by Josh Powell (transMission) and Ronnie Murchison.
