Alpharetta, Ga.-North American Mission Board President Kevin Ezell is calling on Kentucky Baptist churches to assist with the ongoing rebuild efforts in and around New York City following Hurricane Sandy.
More than two years have passed since Hurricane Sandy slammed into the northeastern coastline, and while Southern Baptist Disaster Relief has been helping since day one, Ezell said thousands of residents still desperately need help.
“We need you and the members of your church to consider giving some time to serve in the next few months,” Ezell said. “College students might think about giving a week during Christmas break or spring break. We need people of all ages and with all kinds of skills as we help homeowners rebuild their homes and their lives.”
NAMB recently extended the rebuild effort until August 2015, opening the doors to summer mission projects next year. Churches interested in sending mission teams are encouraged to start the process by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (770) 410-6075.
“This is a great opportunity to carry the hope of the gospel as we meet tangible needs for people whose lives have been derailed,” Ezell said. (KBC)
