A team from South Carolina is scheduled to serve in Romania at the end of May, assisting in the humanitarian crisis caused by the war in Ukraine.

Six people will make up the South Carolina team. The team leader is Wil Bradham, a member of Georgetown First Baptist. Wil is the Director of Missions for the Southeast Baptist Association and serves on the State Leadership Team for South Carolina Baptist Disaster Relief. He was a missionary in Romania for three years until family health issues made it necessary to return to the US.

Of the team, Wil said, “This is God’s team.” Excitement was evident in his voice as he talked about preparing to go. “Our purpose is to serve the precious people of Ukraine who have found themselves displaced from their homeland, forced to leave their homes and families.” Wil added, “I humbly ask for your prayers as we travel and serve.”

This team will be a part of the ongoing effort, coordinated by Southern Baptists’ Send Relief organization, to provide aid to refugees. The effort includes deploying Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams to several locations in Romania and Poland.

The teams work with national partners to provide food, shelter, transportation, medical supplies, clothing, childcare, and trauma ministry to those displaced by the crisis. Each team’s particular assignment varies according to their location and the needs there.
