News & Updates
Team one will travel December 9-15 and team 2 will travel December 16-21. The first phase of ministry will be to assist Harvest Temple in repairing the roof, windows, doors and floors of the church that were damaged after the hurricane, and to begin repairs on a handful of neighborhood homes that have been identified by church leaders in Grand Bahama. Bishop Rodney Forbes is actively ministering to their community, and having these repairs completed to their facility will aid in their ability to further care for those whom God has entrusted to them.
We will continue to plan for teams to respond to the rebuilding efforts as needed in Grand Bahama in 2020.
The response teams are continuing to assess the extent of the damage sustained, as well as best practices for sustainable solutions moving forward. We have received reports from our representatives stating that the most heavily impacted areas are slowly becoming more accessible.
It has become apparent that the Abaco Islands have been the most affected, with a limited amount of aid reaching the devastated communities. The death toll currently stands at 43, with people still missing. It is expected that materials for roofing, debris removal, and a number of different relief supplies will be required in the weeks to come, but for immediate provisions, BGR is supplying food, blankets, and hygiene kits to families in need.
BGR teams are being intentional about implementing sustainable ways to help Bahamians recover. Our goal is to meet the greatest needs as practically and efficiently as possible. Thank you for your prayers and contributions during this time.”
