Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief has been activated in the aftermath of the devastating tornadoes on April 27. 

Jason Yarbrough, Oklahoma Baptist DR state Director, said, “We will serve our neighbors and communities in need. We anticipate mass feeding to be requested and for our chainsaw teams to be serving in some of the hard hit areas including Sulphur, Ardmore, Marietta, Holdenville and Morris.”

“Our DR assessors are out working this morning and all through the day. A chainsaw team is working in Morris removing tree damage and covering roofs with tarps. Other teams will go out as we get info and requests.”

The Oklahoma Baptist DR website is where storm victims may request assistance:

“We serve to show the love of God to people who find themselves in a great time of need. Please be praying for those impacted by the storms, for first responders and for our trained Baptist DR volunteers,” Yarbough added.
