The Alabama teams are relieving Oklahoma DR teams. Both state DR teams and others have been working for weeks to minister to the area after a “historic flood event” hit in mid-March.
Recovery, shower units, laundry units and chaplain personnel have been engaged in DR since March 16 and will continue to provide assistance “that will now be complimented by White Hat leadership, administration and logistics,” according to Mel Johnson, DR strategist for the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions.
“Teams working in Monroe have assisted more than 100 homeowners to date with 200 additional homes in queue,” Johnson said. “There are still areas with structures under water. Please pray for volunteers that respond with ministry and a gospel witness for those in need.”
