First Baptist Gautier, Jackson County Disaster Relief Update:

Teams returned from a weekend trip to Carlisle Baptist Church in Panama City. Our teams did a great job cleaning up around the church and getting the debris to the road. Also cleaning up in the buildings that they will be using until they can rebuild. This church has a great connection with their community and we are so blessed to be able to support them. Please continue to be in prayer for Pastor Josh Fiddler as he leads the congregation through this time.

We will be making one more trip November 29th-December 2nd to work in the community with debris and tree removal. We will be leaving approximately 7AM Friday morning. This is a church to church relief trip so no age limit or badge is required. Please contact Stan if you would like to go at 228-217-6637.

HELPING CARLISLE BAPTIST

From STAN AYCOCK, JCBA DISASTER RELIEF LEADER

First Baptist Church Gautier and Jackson County Disaster Relief are planning a trip back to Carlisle Baptist Church in Panama City on the weekend of the 17th to start demo of interior walls, grounds clean up, roof patching and tarping. This church has been helping their community even though their property has been devastated. We had a great turnout with the Fall Festival there. let's keep up the momentum. The church has room for cots and showers. If you would like to stay overnight, we will be leaving Friday early evening. You can arrive on early Saturday if you would like. Any help will be appreciated. If you are interested going, please reply to this email or contact JCBA at 228.769.7101. In the future, there will the other weekend trips.

JCBA MISSION TEAM BRINGS JOY TO CHILDREN IN PANAMA CITY

The Fall Festival at Carlisle Baptist Church was an incredible success. Over 600 guests were welcomed and 43 Volunteers from 9 churches in Jackson County helped. The pastor and members of the church could not say thank you enough. We plan to have a long term relationship with this church. Please pray for them

PLAN A DR TRIP FOR YOUR CHURCH

If you would like to plan a short term trip to help hurricane victims, we have several contacts in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. We can help you arrange housing. In Panama City, Immanuel Baptist Church is providing meals and a place for volunteers to sleep on cots. Teams are still needed for debris removal, mud-out, tree cutting, and tarping.

Trained DR Volunteers and untrained volunteers can be used. Let us help you prepare to help the many disaster victims.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Pray

Please pray fervently for the storm victims, emergency personnel, and Disaster Relief Volunteers. Please be in prayer as we go to help with not only physical needs but with spiritual needs. Most people have forgotten the struggles that remain in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Don’t forget to remember them in prayer.

Participate

As mentioned earlier, lead your church to actively be involved in meeting the needs of hurting people.
