Oklahoma Baptist chaplains, volunteers ministering to hurting families after storms

EL RENO, Okla.While Oklahomans were devastated by loss from another storm, Oklahoma Baptist disaster relief volunteers are on the ground helping with physical and spiritual assistance.

“Oklahomans are a strong resilient people, yet we must rely on the Lord alone in troubled times like this,” said Sam Porter, Disaster Relief director for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. “Our trained volunteers are serving in Moore, Shawnee, El Reno and other areas affected by the recent storms.

“We have served people in critical times after disasters across the world,” Porter said. “Today we serve our neighbors.”

Oklahoma Baptists offer debris clean up, chaplaincy and other forms of assistance to victims and their families.
