NCBM relief efforts are ongoing
On Monday I had the opportunity to go for a "ride-along" with Richard Brunson, executive director of Baptists on Mission (also known as N.C. Baptist Men; NCBM).

We visited rebuild centers in Lumberton, Rose Hill and New Bern. These sites serve as hubs for ongoing disaster relief efforts in nearby communities. The experience was encouraging, to say the least. The number of lives they are changing is astounding.

Construction efforts are underway at each location to outfit their facilities so they can better serve residents across the state. We also visited some of the homes volunteers are rebuilding for victims of Hurricane Florence.

The residents of each house were beaming with gratitude for the service provided to them in Jesus's name. N.C. Baptists, you should be proud of the Baptists on Mission volunteers and staff.

Keep your eyes open for more to come about my ride-along with Brunson. In the meantime, you can pray for their efforts and give toward the work.
