Hurricane Michael has made land fall on the coast of the panhandle of Florida. Already a record-breaking hurricane, Michael has sustained winds of 155 mph and catastrophic damage is occurring. As a result, all Arkansas Baptist Disaster Relief Units are being placed on standby in preparation for a response to the Florida Gulf Coast. As needs are determined in coordination with Florida Disaster Relief, the Arkansas Baptist Disaster Relief Director and team will prepare a response from Arkansas.
Arkansas Baptists, now is the time to pray! First, pray for those in the line of this dangerous storm. Secondly, pray for first responders who will soon go out and put themselves at risk in order to help others. Last, pray for those in leadership positions who will be making key decisions around the response efforts to Hurricance Michael.
Arkansas Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers, please stay connected to your unit leader for updates and deployment information.
