First Harvey Disaster Relief Trip

Last Friday the church was donated about 2 pallets of water, bottle drinks along with 8 bags/boxes of clothes, about 20 plastic tubs with non-perishable food items, and some paper goods by a Harvey Disaster Relief team from Westrock Paper Mill around Monroe, Louisiana.  They(10 guys) cooked over 700 hamburgers and 400 hot dogs in our parking lot using our charcoal grill and one they had on a trailer.  They unloaded and stacked the above items in our Family Life Center.
 
The above pictures show the loading of the donated food and water in DABC trailer by Mike Jones, Johnny Brantner, and Pat Thurman.  The trailer will be delivered to First Baptist church of Vidor on September 9, 2017 by Mike Jones using his truck to pull the DABC trailer to Vidor, Texas.   Mike has already delivered the 8 boxes of clothes to the Lufkin Women’s Shelter.  
 
The following pictures are from First Baptist Church of Vidor, Texas. They were taken Saturday September 9, 2017 at about 9:15am.  People were everywhere, doing all kinds of work.  The big thing that the pastor said they needed is more  bodies to do the work.  They need people to do any and  every kind  work .  In Vidor,Texas alone there was 65 percent of the homes flooded.
