West Virginia experienced a devastating flash flood in late June, 2016. NCBM Disaster Relief was given Nicholas County to manage for WV Baptists. Cleanup units, Manna 1 field kitchen, and several other units like shower, laundry, bunk, generator and others were mobilized to assist.
As of the end of August, 2016, 248 cleanup projects were completed and over 32,000 meals prepared using 3,377 volunteer days. In addition, 656 loads of laundry were washed and 2,803 showers used with these units. Chaplaincy volunteers made 1,677 contacts and distributed 72 Bibles. The medical team saw 15 patients. In all this we are thankful for the 25 that turned to Jesus during this time.
Please continue to pray for the people affected and the rebuild teams that are providing assistance.
We are in a rebuild effort at this time for those affected by the recent flooding. Volunteers are needed to help rebuild their homes.
