Working together we can accomplish much more than we can alone. This truth is played out in ways that touch lives in a real way when 47,272 churches comprised of 15,216,978 members across America work together. http://www.sbc.net/BecomingSouthernBaptist/FastFacts.asp
This translates into thousands of meals served each day to people displaced by hurricanes Harvey and Irma by our Disaster Relief units staffed by trained volunteers from state conventions including the Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Convention of which we are a part. This is in addition to the mud out units which help clean out flooded houses, chainsaw units that remove downed trees, mobile self-contained laundry units, childcare units and chaplain units. These are all staffed by trained volunteer workers who are working in coordination with local government disaster coordinators to make sure this work is done in the best way where needed. Even though the news cycle has moved away from these disasters to the next newest thing, the disaster relief effort will be with the impacted people as long as a need is there.
