Just a short update to up let those who pray and support us, how you are helping scores who are in need.
Mission Air Care is coordinating, staging, and delivering food across southeast North Carolina. Baptist Disaster Relief has loaned us a tractor trailer to haul food from Raleigh to the airport MAC is based out of. I’ve rented additional hangar space in order to stage food. Nate Holmes, who recently arrived here in New Bern, is coordinating truck loads of food and cleaning supplies to drop off at various churches in the devastated areas. We can’t get enough truckloads into these churches fast enough to relieve the suffering. When a truck arrived at Peace Baptist in Wilmington, there were hundreds of people waiting. Other churches had trucks and vans waiting for the truck to arrive, and it was all gone within an hour. We rented another Penske truck, filled it, and hauled it to a church in Delco, NC, through rising flood waters, to deliver to a church with members waiting to unload it, around midnight!
Planes won’t work for this project. We haven’t seen FEMA. The flooding has almost fallen out of the news cycle completely. But please don’t stop praying for hurting people affected by this hurricane. While many of you will be enjoying church this weekend, scores of churches won’t have electricity, are flooded, or damaged badly.
Please pray for safety. Drivers are doing their best to get food into places that the main roads are closed, and unfamiliar roads are taken. We are working 14 hour days trying to help. Our sending church in New Bern has set up a way to donate to help the churches, and Pastor Owens has promised 100% of the funds will go to help those with needs. If our Lord leads, please visit
to send funds to help. Pray for the MAC staff, Chris Holaday and Nate Holmes, as they and their families work long hours to help (Gal 6:10) If you pray for us and/or support us financially, you are helping these folks. Thank you.
