Alabama Baptist churches safe from Isaac; coastal DR assessments being made

Thomas Wright, executive director of missions for Mobile Baptist Association, said his initial reports indicate Alabama Baptist churches weathered the storm with no major issues. Cypress Shores, Hollinger’s Island, Bayou La Batre, Heron Bay and Dauphin Island indicate flooding on the roads and in yards but not in any houses, he said.

The tree branches that are down are being handled by Mobile Association disaster relief volunteers and others, but Wright continues to assess whether the area will need assistance from other state disaster relief teams.

Mel Johnson, disaster relief strategist for the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, reported that he is preparing for response efforts and as soon as the the heavy winds and rain subsides and requests are made, he will begin sending out the necessary teams (if any are needed).
