Disaster relief continues flood ministry

Southern Baptists of Texas Convention disaster relief volunteers continue to serve in response to the Texas floods.

Currently, volunteers are serving in Eastland County with First Baptist Church of Gorman. Throughout the last two weeks of June and into early July, SBTC disaster relief volunteers fed those stranded by flooding near Weatherford while responding to needs in Haltom City and Keller as well.

In addition to clearing homes of mud and flood debris and damage, volunteers have helped in cleanup and recovery, communications/operations, chaplaincy, and feeding while praying with victims and sharing the gospel when possible.

The convention has scheduled a Phase 1 Disaster relief Training on July 21 at Eagle’s View Baptist Church in Saginaw, near Fort Worth. More information and registration forms can be found on the website at www.sbtexas.com/dr.
