Hurricane Ida Update
We continue to pray for those who have been affected by Category 4 Hurricane Ida and those still in the path of this now, tropical storm. We serve a generous network and many are ready to serve.
I have spoken to Kyle Kelley of CBF Louisiana and David Wells, our DR Coordinator in Tennessee. Both will keep us updated for the next steps in the days ahead.
As you receive calls and requests, please convey to our partners that in this early stage of disaster response, counties, parishes, and affected areas are still accessing damages and engaging in search and rescue. Here’s how you can help now.
Please pray for families who have lost everything they own and first responders who are giving everything they have to save lives. Pray for communities as they cope and as they heal.
We ask that churches and individuals provide financial support so that funds can be used locally to respond in the most effective way to meet needs. Please consider a gift to the CBF Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund at CBF.net.
CBF is not accepting donations of items as we have learned from experience that its is much more efficient and cost-effective to provide funds that allow Disaster Response personnel to procure supplies as needed.
As more information becomes available, I will continue to provide you email updates and updates to our FB Page: CBF Disaster Response Ministries.
Thanking God for each of you,
Rev. Dr. Daynette Snead Perez
CBF Domestic Disaster Response Manager
