HURRICANE SANDY DISASTER RELIEF UPDATE- November 1, 2012
PLEASE ANNOUNCE THIS AT YOUR CHURCH ON SUNDAY - All three of our large NC Baptist feeding units are currently serving in the New Jersey/New York area. The Command Unit, along with large shower units, laundry units, generator units and recovery units, are also on the ground and ministering. Our three large feeding units have a combined capacity of 80,000 meals per day. Recovery, Administration, and Chaplaincy volunteers are also ministering right now to hurting people. Recovery teams are already working in some areas and others will be organized as we hear back from Assessment Teams. The recovery phase (chain saw, mud out, etc.) is coming along, which means we will need many recovery volunteers.
Please do three things: Pray, Go and Give.
Pray. Pray for people who were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Pray for the volunteers who are going to minister. Pray for safety and the witness of our disaster relief volunteers. Pray that God’s love will be shown to hurting people and they will want to know more about our great God who loves them.
