According to Dwain Carter, MBC director of disaster relief, five areas are on alert in the state: feeding, chaplains, childcare, shower, and recovery. The alert likely will be raised to the next level – standby – as the storm makes its way north and damage is assessed.
If the level rises to “Go,” these teams will be deployed.
“We are asking Missouri Baptists to take three steps – pray, give, and go,” says Carter. “Pray for the victims of the storm as well as those in its future path. Pray for those assisting in disaster relief across the country – and specifically for Missouri Baptists who are prepared to serve.”
Missouri Baptists also are encouraged to give sacrificially in support of disaster relief. Go to www.mobaptist.org/mbcdr or contact the Disaster Relief office at 573.636.0400 ext. 631. Your gifts to MBC disaster relief efforts will ensure the funds go where most needed.
