Senior Pastor, Abiding Word Church
I first met Scott and Dara Simons in 2011 during the tornado relief work in Joplin, MO. Our church team was immediately impressed with Scott's dedication, commitment, and organizational passion shown to the task at hand. A special relationship ensued in the coming years as we, at Abiding Word Church, had the desire to establish a Disaster Relief team to help during times of trouble.
We have worked with Right Side Up Ministries in disaster response in Shawnee, OK area in 2013, the Washington, IL area in 2013-2014, and Rochelle and Fairdale, IL in 2015. Our disaster response team was made ready to help as we participated in one of Right Side Up Ministries' initial training courses and have used the training manual to organize our team. The training and materials offered were detailed, thorough, and comprehensive.
I give my highest recommendation to Scott, Dara, and their ministry in training groups to help in time of need.
