Disaster Relief on the High Plains

Fire in Kansas

In early March, a wildfire raged across the high plains of Clark and Comanche Counties in southern Kansas, burning over 500,000 acres and killing or injuring thousands of cattle.

Homesteads were leveled, leaving nothing but concrete and steel. The Fellowship of Christian Farmers is in the process of organizing volunteers to repair the over 4,000 miles of fencing damaged in the wildfires (near Ashland, Kansas).

We would like to put together a team from Sweet Grass County and the surrounding area that would travel to Kansas on May 22nd and spend that week repairing fences for the many affected families of this tragedy. Transportation will be arranged by Montana On a Mission and meals and lodging in Kansas will be provided by FCFI.

There may be some shared incidental cost related travel, etc, but Montana on a Mission and FCFI will work together to keep costs low. Dates, leave times, and return are still being finalized, but we need to know who is interested.

If you are interested in being part of this team, please contact Jay Pravecek at jay@montanaonamission or fill out the form below.
