Disaster Relief Training - Saturday, March 25th

An exciting development!

The Director for New Mexico Baptist Disaster Relief, Ed Greene, has said that the ministry is making a "tweak" to its approach. In the past, their focus has been on helping with disasters when called to help by the SBC. The result has often meant needing to deploy for weeks at a time in other states. On occasion, of course, they have been deployed to help with clean up efforts and other work in connection with large disasters here in New Mexico, as well. But Ed says that has resulted in those who can participate being older, retired folks who can afford to be gone from home for weeks at a time.

To change this and allow more people to help, they are going to now consider helping with smaller projects submitted by local churches and associations in New Mexico. Projects that might require a crew to work for one or maybe two days. This will allow folks who cannot afford to be away for weeks at a time to also participate. But they need to go through the two hour training that New Mexico Disaster Relief offers. Once they are trained, their name is added to a list of folks who receive notification of upcoming projects needing volunteers. If they can help, they respond accordingly. If they cannot, then they wait for the next notification.


Sign up for the training!

The Baptist Convention of New Mexico will provide training for all persons interested in becoming part of the New Mexico Baptist Disaster Relief ministry. This training will be hosted by Central Baptist in Clovis on Saturday, March 25th, from 9 a.m. to noon.
