OKLAHOMA CITY—Oklahoma Baptists are making a huge impact in the devastation from Oklahoma Wildfires through disaster relief volunteers and a wildfire relief fund.
“Our feeding units have been serving victims of the fires and volunteers during this critical time, and we have a massive ash clean up plan in place,” said Sam Porter, disaster relief director for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO). “For people wishing to help, we have established the ‘Oklahoma Wildfire Relief’ fund at bgco.org. ”
BGCO disaster relief volunteers, who have been involved in disaster relief across the country, including recently with ash clean up in Coloardo and New Mexico, are actively involved in Oklahoma.
“Our volunteers are highly trained and are motivated to make a difference because of their faith in the Lord,” he added. “Oklahoma Baptists will continue to help in Colorado while we actively work and minister here. We believe to whom much is given, much is required.”
