IBSA Executive Director Nate Adams visited Disaster Relief volunteers working today in storm-damaged areas of the state.
“Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers, including those here in Illinois, work very hard year-round to be prepared when disaster strikes,” Adams said. “It is their love for Jesus that compels them to stand ready like that, and it’s that same love that they deliver with every act and word of kindness as they serve victims and relief workers.”
Crews are meeting needs in Washington as they can, but access is limited to the areas that sustained the worst damage. Pekin and other communities in the Peoria area also have received Disaster Relief help since tornadoes and severe storms tore through the area Nov. 17. At Woodland Baptist in Peoria, volunteers are cooking several hundred meals a day for storm victims and responders.
