Please read the information about South Carolina flooding from Hurricane Joaquin. The situation is not good for the people.
There are three of our groups working together, Operation Renewed, Hope, Anchor Baptist Missions, and Hearts with Hands.
Dr. Randy Barton, founder of Anchor Baptist Missions (firstname.lastname@example.org) is in Columbia now with a team of people from his ministry. Please read what he has sent to us yesterday.
“We are focusing on supplies out of Gant Street. My people are there, and the need has already overwhelmed the supply, and we were not even scheduled to open until tomorrow afternoon.
If we can refer the Restoration efforts for ORH to coordinate, it would help us greatly. We have all we can do and more with the Response aspect of this. Any help with supplies you can steer our way would be appreciated.”
Dr. Greg Lintz, director of Hearts with Hands out of Ashville, NC, www.heartswithhands.org, has a semi-truck headed into Columbia now with relief goods. He will be coordinating with Dr. Barton’s team and help distribute the needed supplies.
We want to thank Dr. Bill Egerdahl, pastor of Grace Baptist Church in West Columbia, for supplying pastoral staff to coordinate the work of ORH in the flood zone. Dr. David Smith of the church pastoral staff will help ORH reach the people with help and the gospel. Dr. Smith is in the flood zone now attempting to determine the local families’ needs for their homes and properties. Pray for his safety.
There is much to do. This is an opportunity for all of us to give the gospel thousands in the US. Please help us to do this. If you have supplies, a work team, or know someone in need, please contact ORH immediately.
We have included a PDF of the Congaree Baptist Church which had 3 to 5 feet of water in its facilities. This church was preparing its 250th year of existence. They were chartered before the Revolutionary War.
