Alabama Baptist disaster relief responds to recent storms

Alabama Baptist disaster relief volunteers have responded to another need — flooding in Baldwin County.

On May 1, a team of 12 Alabama Baptist disaster relief volunteers assisted flood victims in Foley, according to Bill Stephens who was temporarily coordinating the relief effort for the association.

Mel Johnson, disaster relief strategist for the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, explained that steps are being taken to deploy more disaster relief teams to Baldwin County. “Initial assessment damage is so severe that we will be engaged with relief support for months to come,” Johnson explained.
