Disaster Response

Update:
Just heard back from Pastor Cody Mansfield at Tabernacle FWB Church in Kinston, NC. They are beginning clean up this Saturday. We need everyone that can to show up and help. Still checking on other churches and we will keep updating as we receive information. There have also been many families displaced by flooding. If you can help financially you can send it to our office or to the NC FWB Sate office.

I just talked to Cody Mansfield, pastor at Tabernacle FWB Church in Kinston, NC. Their church had seven feet of water and still has two feet. As soon as the water goes away he will let us know and we will make a plan. Also heard from Rueben Cason and he said Faith in Goldsboro had no water in their main building but did in the school.
I just returned from South Georgia and saw the damage there. If you would like to help with clean up there contact me.
We are continuing to collect funds to help.

Just got off the phone with Bro. Reuben Cason, promotional man for North Carolina. Several churches have been affected by the floods from Hurricane Matthew. But because water is still rising in many areas we can’t respond yet. Once the rivers crest and the waters subside we will need lots of help. Master’s Men will stay in touch and get the word out ASAP when things start moving. Or he can contact Bro. Reuben for information or to volunteer or make a donation. 252-230-4430

More updates. Flooding waters continue to rise in NC. We can’t go in until the water goes down, which they are saying may be this weekend. There are other areas that need help. Let us know if you can go help. Clean up and chain saws seem to be needed.

As probably many of you have already seen, there is widespread flooding and destruction caused by Matthew. If you want to help please let me know and we can point you in the right direction. If you can’t go but would like to help you can send your donations to Master’s Men and we will make sure it gets to where you want it to go or where we see the greatest need. Our address is. PO Box 5002 Antioch, TN 37011

I have talked to pastors or state leaders in FL, GA, NC and SC and so far have only found one FWB Church that received any significant damage. I am waiting for a call to see what kind of help they might need. Once everything slows down, we will see where we need to go and what we need to do. Update: getting news that there may be flooding in NC that has affected churches there. Again we will keep you updated.
