The Fellowship of Christian Farmers International is continuing its Hurricane Ike Rapid Response disaster relief campaign in Southeast Texas. Lodging and meals have been established for volunteer ranchers and farmers who donate time to rebuild fences destroyed by the hurricane’s storm surge. Storm water is still standing in some pastures and more than 1,000 miles of perimeter fences will need to be built.

One volunteer team went to the area in January and built around 150 miles of fence. For more info, call Dennis Schlagel, executive director, at 309-365-8710 or visit
