Billy Graham Assoc. Assists Tornado Victims

Ad Feedback

Christian organizations are delivering assistance to the tornado victims in Moore, Okla.

A half dozen chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association are on the ground and another 10 could soon be headed that way from Charlotte, N.C.  

Jack Munday is international director for the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team.

In an interview with Charlotte's WSOC-TV, Munday told reporters, "Our purpose is to provide emotional and spiritual care to those folks so devastated by this disaster."

Volunteers from Southern Baptist Disaster Relief began traveling nearly 900 miles from the Atlanta area to Oklahoma Tuesday.
They're bringing truck-loads of supplies, as well as Bibles and teddy bears for the children.

The Southern Baptist's Mike Ebert told WSB-TV, "These people's lives have been put on hold and we want to come in and just help them get on with their lives as quickly as possible."

Ebert went on to say, "The toughest thing of course is just the human tragedy part of it so the first thing we ask people to do is pray."

The Southern Baptist team from Georgia should arrive in Oklahoma Thursday.  Those volunteers will assess what else is needed and then make plans to send more assistance to the tornado-ravaged region.
