Mormon Helping Hands in Rockaway, New York - Video

Watch missionaries, Mormons and non-Mormons serve together in New York after Hurricane Sandy. This video made me cry as I watched the Gospel of Jesus Christ in action. Governments can't do everything for us after a disaster, but people can do many things of their own free will and choice to serve their brothers and sisters. We are all God's children.

According to the creator, Joshua Brown, "thousands of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continue to volunteer to assist in the recovery efforts within these communities. On Sunday, November 11th, thousands of Mormons cancelled their church services and arrived by air, bus and train from all across the country to help.

"Please share this video with any friends and family that might be able to help the areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. Not only at the Rockaways, but Staten Island, Long Island, and New Jersey. The church is coordinating the efforts, but anyone (both Mormon and non Mormon) is welcome to come and help."

  1. Thanks for sharing this video today! I'm going to post it on my blog tomorrow. It feels good to be part of such a humble organization and I hope one day I have the opportunity to wear a yellow vest, too.
