The Open Door: letter of appreciation for Disaster Relief after Hurricane Matthew

Print Friendly

Recently Hurricane Matthew spun up the coasts of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas, wreaking a great deal of destruction. Whenever these disastrous weather events take place I am always deeply impressed by Southern Baptist Disaster Relief and especially appreciative of our Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief teams as they spring into action to bring encouragement and relief to those who have been affected by the natural disaster.

Once again, our disaster relief teams made the difference as they descended on Brunswick, Georgia and as you can see from this letter, they provided a great blessing to Calvary Baptist Church in Brunswick. I wanted you to read this letter (click to enlarge) from the pastor and hear the heartbeat of appreciation that is coming out of Calvary Baptist Church for our Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief.

I am so thankful for Stuart Lang, who leads our Disaster Relief here in Georgia. I am deeply grateful for all of our disaster relief workers who are so committed to helping those who are suffering in the wake of the storm.

This is another way that your Cooperative Program and Mission Georgia dollars are at work as we support the ministry of Disaster Relief in Georgia and beyond.
