As tropical storm Hanna approaches the North Carolina coast, N.C. Baptist Men (NCBM) director Richard Brunson reports that the organization’s biggest feeding unit, called “Manna One,” is set up and serving meals to people in Houma, Louisiana, which caught the worst of Hurricane Gustav.
N.C. Baptist volunteers expected to prepare and serve more than 10,000 meals on Friday and more than 30,000 meals on Saturday. “This is a very big operation,” Brunson said, “so please pray for those who were affected by Gustav as well as the volunteers who are trying to help.”
For more information on NCBM volunteers’ response to Gustav, as well as upcoming storms Hanna, Ike, and Josephine, readers can check for updates at NCBM’s website, www.ncmissions.org.
The ministry of NCBM is supported by the North Carolina Missions Offering of the Baptist State Convention, which is traditionally received in September. Designated gifts for disaster relief can be sent to NCBM, P.O. Box 1107, Cary, NC, 27512, marked “disaster relief.”
