Kentucky Flood Response: One-Month Update

Volunteers from Beaverdam Association Mud-Out Unit

Ministry continues in McDowell, Kentucky where South Carolina Baptist Disaster Relief is running a site for flood recovery. After four weeks of operations, our mud-out units and chaplains have completed 39 mud-out jobs and led nine people to salvation!

Chaplains and Mud-out volunteers are not the only ones who serve – their work is made possible by the “support ministry” of others. Laundry volunteers wash their clothes and clean the showers they use. Feeding volunteers prepare hearty, hot meals for them. Incident Management volunteers keep the operations organized and make sure the mud-out units have what they need. Assessors make the initial contact with the homeowners, write up the work orders and prioritize them. Without these “behind the scenes” volunteers, the response would not be possible!

In the final week at the site there will be mud-out volunteers from New York Disaster Relief joining with a unit from SC to serve. Plans are for the site to close at the end of Labor Day weekend. Join us in praising the Lord for what He has done and will do through the DR volunteers in Kentucky. Please pray that we will finish strong there in bringing help, hope, and healing to the people of McDowell.
