Hurricane Ian Update
Thanks for your prayers, gifts and support. N.C. Baptist Disaster Relief has been asked by Florida Baptist
Disaster Relief to serve Hurricane Ian survivors in some of the hardest hit parts of Florida.
Tomorrow, September 30, Manna One (30,000 meals per day capacity) will deploy to Cape Coral, Florida
to begin setting up. Meal service and distribution will begin Monday. The volunteers needed to set up
for Manna One, shower/laundry, logistics, safety, Medical Reserve Corp, communications, admin and
chaplaincy will travel on Saturday with our equipment. One recovery team will travel on Saturday to
assist with any debris removal for our setup. On Sunday, feeding volunteers along with additional
chaplains and admin volunteers will travel to Cape Coral. As we begin feeding on Monday, assessment
volunteers will arrive to begin assessing damage and work orders on Tuesday. On Tuesday we will have
our first recovery volunteers travel to Cape Coral to begin work on Wednesday.
We are also monitoring the weather as this storm comes to North Carolina. We have volunteers on alert
and will take care of any needs in NC that are a result of the storm.
Please pray for the storm victims and relief volunteers. Please continue to pray for those affected
by Hurricane Ian. Pray that the volunteers will be the hands and feet of Jesus to hurting people. By God's
grace, N.C. Baptists will be there to minister and serve in Jesus' name. As N.C. Baptists, we have been
greatly blessed with disaster relief equipment, volunteers and churches who care about hurting people
and meeting their needs in Jesus’ name.
Consider giving to help those in need. Please support the NC Missions Offering which provides for
the on-going disaster relief ministry and all ministries of Baptists on Mission. If you want to make a

Hurricane Ian will be felt for a long time. To register as a volunteer or receive updates, go to
