Hurricane Michael Response from UNTCI

Photos of responding volunteers and workers to the aftermath have been removed from this web post. The photos used were copied from the public domain, however on Dec 7, 2020, UNTCI received a communication via email from PicRights International, Inc. on behalf of Reuters News & Media Inc Imagery, claiming the rights to these pictures.

“Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interest of others.”

~ Philippians 2:1-4 NKJV


The “Recovery Ministry” of UNTCI is having some difficulty in gearing up and readying a physical response. Not from lack of volunteers this time, but the lack of a heavy duty truck to get the equipment into the area.

If you are wanting to volunteer to head into the area of the Panhandle of Florida to help with debris clearing, support, and restoration, please email “Home Office” ASAP at include in the Subject Line “Recovery Volunteer” As we have a group identified we will be leaving together with the equipment and supplies in convoy from home office here in Elkmont Alabama.

If you have equipment of your own, it would help if you brought it with you:

  • Gasoline (in proper storage containers)
  • Diesel fuel (in proper storage containers)
  • 2 cycle oil
  • Flashlights w/ batteries
  • water
  • cooler(s)
  • shelf stable foods
  • gloves, eye protection, ear protection, hard hat, mud boots
  • mosquito repellent
  • wet wipes 
  • Chain Saw w/ Bar Oil
  • generator
  • medium / heavy duty moving equipment ie. Skid Loader, Front End Loader, etc.
  • Camper
  • Heavy Duty Pickup Truck capable of pulling/towing

If you have a group organized through your own ministry, let us know. We can help by routing you into the area and finding places in need of what you have to offer, whether it services, supplies, or just a bunch of volunteers ready to get dirty. We have several “rally” points identified and churches that are their needing help, helping all those in need now. Again, email us at “Home Office” to let us know. Include a good point of contact and cell phone number capable of voice & text.

If you can’t take the time to go, send up your prayers church. Let us raise our collective voice to the Lord for His providence, protection, and beyond restoration, a new resurrected purpose with their hope, faith, and future bound in our Lord God.

Brothers and Sisters, in addition to our prayers that avail much in His name, we must be obedient and give to those who are now in desperate need. We are buying supplies for their support and immediate needs as we can gather the means of grace to do so. GIVE…
