Disaster Relief Team
I am currently waiting for our team assignment. If you have interest in going alone or with a few of you getting together, because it may better suit your personal or work schedule, I am giving you the most current update. Once you sign up and register online, they will communicate the nature of the recovery work going on now. You can go on your own, or we have tentative plans to go around mid to lte September.
Hurricane Dorian caused several tornadoes and a lot of damage to some parts of the Outer Banks. Continue to pray for people who were affected by Dorian and for our volunteers. Right now we have set up and are doing recovery out of Atlantic, NC to serve Cedar Island, which had lots of flooding. We are working out of Atlantic Missionary Baptist Church. We also have a logistic, chaplain and admin team.
We have also set up a mass feeding and recovery site at Cape Hatteras (staying at Cape Hatteras Baptist Church) to serve Hatteras and Ocracoke areas. Kitchen 3 unit is cooking today on Hatteras (food is being taken by boat over to Ocracoke). Recovery is also there. We have logistic, chaplain and admin teams there.
We have 4 large shower units, laundry units (3 of them), generators and water takers units all serving on Ocracoke right now. We are working today to set up recovery operations on Ocracoke.
To sign up to help, go to https://baptistsonmission.org/Dorian
As you pray, pray for those who were affected by the storm. Pray for God's protection and comforting hand upon their lives. Pray for wisdom, strength and sensitivity on the part of those who are responding.
If you know of anyone interested in assisting us or joining in our work, PLEASE pass on any information that could be helpful. If you have questions please feel free to call or email me….
