Disaster Relief Alert
The floods along the Mississippi River have caused great damage withing the areas served by American Baptist Churches. Currently, four DR teams from Illinois are engaged in clean-up work in Southern Illinois and Northwestern Kentucky. Mac Shotwell, of the Great Rivers DR, sent out an email asking other DR regions to be on stand-by because, “We may be out of man power soon”. They are presently cleaning houses in Olive Branch, Illinois and are working with Methodist and Southern Baptist in that area. Our need right now is to be ready to go and help clean flood damaged homes if and when we receive the call to go. Please give this your prayerful consideration.
