O.T.E.S. ( Operation Temporary Emergency Shelter) is a program birthed by God, to provide shelter for men, women and children, all of them being His people. This program is to provide shelter in times of disaster, war and/ or displacement. If we are to help, I would refer you to Mathew 25: vs 31 to 46 where Christ tells us "when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and
sisters, you were doing it to me."

The shelter could be used for a short time, or stay for a longer duration. These buildings are modular, they can be assembled on any level ground, and then disassembled, moved and reused for any purpose. While the initial purpose was for family dwellings, even medical and surgical consideration would work. Store supplies and other necessary services could operate from within these buildings. Church services would be aptly served. The uses are wide open, while the wind, rain and snow would stay outside.

The heart of this ministry is based on helping others in a time of true need. Christ must be shown as the core of the program, for what we do for them, we do for Him as well!! As was written in Jeremiah 10: vs 19 and 20, "My wound is desperate, and my grief is great ... My home is gone , and no one left to help me rebuild it...". The NIV states in Isaiah 58: vs 7 "is it not to share your food with the hungry, and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter- when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood".

We, in North America, have been blessed immensely! When much is given, much is expected. We have an abundance of God's grace, and we should start to share some of His hope, grace and mercy to those who can not see it now!

Please pray for this ministry, and help us to show Christ at work through His people here.

May God bless you.
