MDHI Global Impact

We live in a fallen world. Romans 8 reveals that all creation is groaning under sin and waiting for the redemption that will only occur at the final advent of Christ. In the meantime, humans do all we can to prevent emergencies and disasters. When we can’t prevent them, we try to minimize the suffering and destruction that they cause.

Jesus also calls His people to fight for justice for the prisoners. Many people worldwide have been unjustly imprisoned for holding different political views from those in power. More troubling to Christians, many brother and sisters in Christ are imprisoned for their faith in Him. Anyone, from groups to individuals, can write letters to prisoners to encourage them in righteousness and push for their release, knowing that their captors will undoubtedly see the letters as well.

The team at MDHI plays a role in emergency and disaster preparedness and response. We work with the Beaver Volunteer Fire Department and the West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptists. In addition to normal fire and disaster duties, we provide chaplaincy services, including preaching, teaching, counseling, and music.

Pick up a copy of the Firefighter 1 and 2 Study Guide. It will help you pass your FF 1 and 2 classes, and is a great review for more experienced firefighters.
