9/23/18 Hurricane Florence Update

We are set up with big mobile feeding kitchens at 10 locations across eastern NC. Feeding Operations continue at all of those sites where thousands of meals were provided today. Recovery operations are underway in most of these same locations plus many others. There are a total of 18 recovery sites as of today with others being added. We will need many disaster recovery volunteers for many weeks to come.   Our three NC Feeding units are located in Wilmington, Lumberton and New Bern. Kentucky is serving in Jacksonville and Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief is serving in Kinston. Missouri and Alabama Baptists volunteers are serving in Wallace and Hope Mills. Florida and Mississippi Baptist Disaster Relief are serving in Whiteville and Bolivia. NC. Many other states have sent recovery teams and volunteers. We already established some recovery (mud-out, chainsaw, tear-out) sites where we will work out of to help as many people as possible.  We plan to establish many more recovery sites. This will be a long term response. Please continue to pray for people affected by Florence, our churches and pastors who are affected/ministering, and our volunteers who are serving. Thank you for praying, giving and going.

9/17/18 Hurricane Florence Update

Feeding Operations continue at 2nd Baptist Church in Washington and Temple Baptist Church in New Bern where thousands of meals were provided today. Recovery operations are beginning in some areas where the water has receded. There are many areas where the water has not receded. We will need many disaster recovery volunteers for many weeks to come.  We had difficulty getting food into some of the sites today, but are hopeful that we can get additional food shipments into sites tomorrow.  Our three NC Feeding units are located in Wilmington, Lumberton and New Bern. Kentucky and Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief units arrived last night and Missouri and Alabama volunteers arrived tonight. Florida and Mississippi Baptist Disaster Relief are also on their way here. NC and 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 continue to be the 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. Thank you for praying, giving and going.

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.

NC Baptists on Mission/NCBM are working with our partners at Emergency management, Red Cross and Salvation Army to place large feeding kitchens in various locations across the flooded areas. Right now, Virginia General Baptists are set up for mass feeding at Second Baptist Church in Washington, NC. We 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 awaiting delivery of food and additional equipment and volunteers. Plans are being worked on for additional large kitchen sites and other disaster recovery (mud-out, tear-out, chainsaw locations). The locations of those sites will be finalized as the storm passes and we can get in to set up. 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. Six other State Conventions are sending feeding units into North Carolina to help us. We are so thankful for our SBC Disaster Relief friends who are coming to help us.
