Recovery teams continue to serve in communities where Hurricane Florence dumped her destructive rains four weeks ago. The responses of churches and individuals has been very sacrificial and generous. Richard Brunson, director of N.C. Baptists on Mission, said volunteers will be needed for a very long time. Keep praying for the workers who are serving and for more volunteers to join the disaster relief teams. It’s never too late to give to the North Carolina Missions Offering through your church.
