Liaison's will be working with the work teams listed above and will be the connection for the work team to the homeowners, finding out the needs that the homeowners may still need. There will be atleast two liaison's per work team. The liaison's main focus will be making a connection with the homeowners in the area while the work teams are doing their work. Liaison's will be there to talk to the homeowners who happen to be walking by and answer the questions of the homeowners. Liaison's will be there ready to listen to and ready to share Christ with those they meet. Each liaison is asked to keep track of any decisions that are made to accept Christ as Savior. The reason for this is so the local churches can visit with these at a later time, to encourage them to attend a local church, to help them build their faith. The contact person for this team is Anita Sontheimer (816) 324-6168, after 6pm.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us - yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalms 90:17
