156. MissionCast – Christ in the Debris – Kevin Fisher – Liberty UMC

ChristKevin Fisher from Liberty United Methodist Church is one of our conference’s very committed and active responders when disasters strike.  He has helped build a very effective disaster response team at Liberty United Methodist Church.  The Liberty team has taken a FEMA trailer and converted it to a fully equipped kitchen from which to serve food after a disaster.  Governor Nixon even invite Kevin to be an honored guest during his 2010 State of the State Address.  What we didn’t know about Kevin until recently is that he can do wonders with wood.  Liberty United Methodist Church just dedicated a wood mosaic head of Christ that Kevin hand carved.  Kevin calls it “Christ in the Debris.”  All of the wood was debris from disasters before Kevin worked his magic.  Kevin says that while working in the field after a disaster they are constantly meeting Christ among the disaster survivors.
