AR DR have partnered with Oklahoma Disaster Relief to minister to the people of Bay County Florida. Our Incident Management Team is on site until October 27 when a team from Oklahoma will arrive to relieve them. Our Incident Management Team will resume coordination duties on November 10. They are working with assessors, chaplains, feeding volunteers, chainsaw teams, and shower/laundry teams. Currently, Oklahoma is supplying volunteers to the feeding unit in Panama City. Red River Association will replace them on October 29. The following week the team from First Baptist Forrest City will relieve them. Oklahoma will return after that. We have four chainsaw teams on site: Northwest, Tri-County, Beckspur, and Walnut Street. Indian Springs, Fellowship Bible, and Arkansas River Valley will be going to continue the relief efforts in the following weeks. Mount Zion and Corner’s Chapel shower/laundry units are onsite to provide services to the volunteers during their stay. We have been able to reach 493 people through ministry and 256 people through our chaplaincy program. So far we have seen 11 professions of faith!! We are continuing to reach out to home owners and neighbors, police officers, military personnel, and civilian works during this process.
