Hurricane Michael Recovery FL/GA 2018-19
Most are aware of the cataclysmic hurricane Michael that struck FL and GA in Oct. 2018 The need for recovery work is still ongoing as of Jan 2019. Our God’s love however is pouring out through Disaster Relief servant volunteers. Here are some highlights: ** Chain saw recovery crews are still needed. ** Hundreds of churches between FL and GA will have to be rebuilt. ** The overall land mass destruction has to be more than hurricanes Andrew or Katrina. Many experienced in Disaster Relief have stated they’ve never seen anything like this before. ** In Georgia alone it is as if a tornado the size of 23 counties had struck. ** Even the Florida director of Disaster Relief, Delton Beall’s, house was damaged. ** A FL long-term recovery response center is already being planned so that volunteer teams can go over the next year when available and have housing. ** There is currently a large housing shortage even for volunteers. The state of Florida is setting up base camps. ** Many chaplains are needed. Desperation is on the increase. ** There is an intense need for more feeding units and DR volunteers in Florida- Our multi-state Disaster Relief organizations have more than 16 mobile feeding units set up and more are needed. DR NE is actively recruiting and sending crews. Our first crew to FL is a feeding team. We are committed to assisting in the months ahead by sending recovery crews, cooks, assessors and chaplains. If you would like to help, sign up today. Tim Buehner Director SBC Disaster Relief New England tbuehner@bcne.net 401-527-2553

Hurricane Florence Recovery NC 2018-19
NC DISASTER RELIEF RESPONSE For those of you who were unable to deploy to North Carolina but who are still interested in assisting with hurricane relief, realize that the recovery phase has ended in mid December, 2018 and they have now started the REBUILD phase. DR New England does not have a REBUILD structure or part to its organization, so we are encouraging churches to organize short-term mission teams to send construction crews to participate in helping. The BCNE has made a commitment to partner with NC Baptists On Mission and Eastern Baptist Association of Warsaw, NC, in their efforts to rebuild 550 homes after the destruction caused by Hurricane Florence. Your church can help! We need two kinds of short-term mission teams willing to serve in North Carolina in 2019: construction rebuild teams and ministry teams to serve in the thrift store. Home reconstruction may involve installing drywall and plywood flooring, minimal bathroom and kitchen installs and various other tasks to get homeowners back into their homes. Along the way, you can also meet spiritual needs. The local association will provide assignments, housing, materials and food, so the only cost is transportation. You can get connected by contacting Tim Buehner: tbuehner@bcne.net
