Teen Serves New Orleans Tornado Survivors

Aaron Atkison was baptized at the Clinton, Arkansas, Seventh-day Adventist Church on Sabbath, February 11, 2017.  After church Bev Wynot, an Adventist Community Services volunteer, was preparing to come help in New Orleans following the tornado.  Aaron inquired as to where she was going, and upon hearing about her work with disaster response, he wanted to go along.  He has been in New Orleans the last two days tirelessly working serving emergency supplies to those affected by the tornado.  "It's the right thing to do, and I always want to volunteer when given the opportunity," said Aaron. He is pictured in the Texas Clothing Van (semi truck), filling orders for those who requested prepackaged clothing outfits.  He also helped keep the distribution line supplied with other items.  Elder Joe Watts, ACS Disaster Response Director for the Southwestern Union commented that "He was baptized one day, and serving others the next day, and that's the way it should be."
