An update from the DR State Director

“I will be with you”, are the comforting words we read in Scripture over and over again. We have certainly experienced that Presence during Covid-19. Churches adjusted to social distancing, provided care to people in need, and continued to preach the Word with the confidence that God is with us.

Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief mobilized a shower unit to a testing site, a laundry unit to Chicago, hosted a Chaplaincy Hotline, distributed food, recruited volunteers to help at food banks, responded to requests for assistance, and encouraged churches to help locally wherever possible. In addition, we have responded to storm events with chainsaw crews during Covid-19.

In the months ahead, all of us will be seeking new ways to serve others safely using the latest guidance ( Let me encourage you to persevere through this trial which requires tremendous flexibility in how we serve others.

Thank you for serving well over the past few months. Keep up the good work!

Remember the promise of Jesus, that He will be with us, even to the end of the age.

Volunteer Response Plan for Disasters During COVID-19

We as Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief, seek to give help, hope, and healing to those in need. In light of current events, our mission is to continue to provide care, while keeping our volunteers safe. We are taking precautions to keep the health and wellness of our volunteers and those we serve our priority.

Don't Go It Alone

In times like these our spiritual and emotional health can take a toll on our well-being. Self-isolation, quarantines, stay-at-home orders, and a general uneasiness about the future can be challenging. But do not worry. You are not the only one feeling this way.

If you would like to talk to a disaster relief chaplain we invite you to email or call.
