May 2009 Ministry to West Virginia
Showing the love of Jesus in a practical way
May 19, 2009
A team lead by Carl and Bonnie Perry from Enon Baptist Church have responded to Matewan, WV. The 8-person team is working in this small community to bring Hope and relief to those impacted by the floods that occurred two weeks ago. They have conducted numerous disaster assessments and worked at several homes removing mud and debris from homes and basements.
Additionally, Eddie Urbine of Old Powhatan Baptist Church is Incident Commander (IC) for the Matewan response. He is working with former SBCV missionary, Delton Beall, in the coordination of all relief efforts in the area. Along with the SBCV team and IC, there are teams from TN, New England, GA and soon to be arriving a team from MD/DE, working together to show the love of Jesus in a practical way.267
