9/16/18 Hurricane Florence Update

Feeding Operations are going well at 2nd Baptist Church in Washington and Temple Baptist Church in New Bern. New feeding sites (with big kitchens) that are being set up today include sites in Wilmington, Kinston, Jacksonville, Lumberton, Hope Mills (Fayetteville).  We have 2-3 more additional areas where we are working to set up large kitchens. The strategy is to set up sites that can be a hub and food taken out from there to a number of surrounding areas. Baptists on Mission/NCBM are working with our partners at Emergency management, Red Cross and Salvation Army in the placement of these large feeding kitchens to try to help as many people as we can. In some cases there are places that we would like to be, but they are cut off due to the flooding. Right now, Virginia General Baptists are set up for mass feeding at Second Baptist Church in Washington, NC. They will also to do disaster recover (mud-outs, tear-outs) from this location. NC Feeding unit #1 (Manna One) is set up at Temple Baptist Church in New Bern. There will also be a recovery operation out of this location. Our two other large NC units are in other locations (Wilmington and Lumberton) awaiting delivery of food and additional equipment and volunteers. Kentucky and Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief units and volunteers arrived last night and Alabama and Missouri Baptists are arriving tonight. Florida Baptist Disaster Relief are also on their way here. Many other states will send recovery teams and volunteers. Bill Martin, our disaster recovery coordinator is working at setting up disaster recovery (mud-out, chainsaw, tear-out) sites where we will work out of to help as many people as possible.  The challenges today have been the numerous road closures that have affected our ability to get big feeding units in where we want them and are preventing us from getting food deliveries at some locations. This will be a long term response. Please continue to pray for people affected by Florence, our church and pastors who are affected/ministering, and our volunteers who are serving.
