Disaster Relief for Hurricane Harvey

2017 | by Clint | Category: Disaster Relief,Giving Opportunity,Global,Prayer

With the terrible damage and flooding Hurricane Harvey has left in its wake, many of you are asking what you can do to help and how can you give.

Desert Springs Church has a disaster relief option on our online giving page. Your giving will be collected and sent to the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) at this time to help in their aid to the people directly affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The Southern Baptist Texas Convention Disaster Relief has joined Texas emergency response teams including the Texas Baptist Men, the North American Mission Board (NAMB)’s Disaster Relief teams, the American Red Cross, state police and fire departments, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) teams and more. Southern Baptists in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Mississippi are readying volunteers and equipment as well. Read more here about this collaboration. Want give to this effort directly? Here is how.

Wood Cutting Ministry

2017 | by Clint | Category: Global,Mission Opportunity,Native American

During our hot New Mexico summers it’s hard to imagine there being a need for year-round fire wood.  However, for families on the Navajo Reservation, it is a daily need all year for cooking meals and, in the winter, for keeping warm.   On Saturday, August 12, 2017 a group of men got together for the Woodcutting Ministry’s quarterly trip to cut, load up and take wood out to the Reservation.

It was a great time of good conversations and meeting some of the families that are served by this ministry.

We would love to have you join us next time! If you are interested in helping, the next wood cutting fellowship is planned for Saturday, November 11, 2017.  Contact Lee Scott at

Please pray for the C familly as they travel back home today.  Pray for gracious airline workers that will help with all of the luggage and check in, for the family to make all of their connections, and make it through immigration without any hassle at customs.

“Thank you all for all of your hospitality, service, and prayers this summer. Its hard to believe our time here has come to an end! We were so blessed to be able to spend time with each and every one of you. We are humbled that you would make sacrifices and join together to be part of this work with us. We are extremely grateful for you, and we look forward to seeing you again!” – The C’s

New prayer cards for the C family will be available on Sunday, August 20, 2017. Be sure to pick one up at the kiosk.
