Dear Brothers & Sisters,
I cannot imagine what it must feel like to drive up to the place where your home once stood only to see a pile of rubble and ashes. In seconds, everything you own disappears in a plume of fire and smoke. For the last several weeks, the BGCO Disaster Relief volunteer teams have come along side our friends in New Mexico and Colorado to clear home sites so families can start over. They demonstrated care and love for families devastated by wildfires in these states.
NOW OUR FELLOW OKLAHOMANS HAVE BEEN STRUCK BY DESTRUCTIVE WILDFIRES. Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers have been at work from the beginning to provide meals and assessment. Now they are helping clear the rubble from home sites for those who have lost so much. Our volunteers will not only offer help for the physical needs but be assured they will also offer the love of Jesus Christ.
We have established an Oklahoma Wildfire Relief Fund, to be used under the direction of our disaster relief office, to meet the needs of families touched by the devastating fires. You may donate online or simply send checks to the BGCO, Attn: Wildfire Fund, 3800 N. May Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73112. Your dollars will support the work of our volunteers as they meet the needs of those who have lost so much.
In times past, Oklahoma Baptists have helped establish the “Oklahoma Standard” for help during a time of hurt. We will do so in the midst of this tragedy.
Thank you for caring.
Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma
