Pray, Give, Support
- Pray that God will use our volunteers to bring help, hope, and healing to those affected by disasters!
- Pray for the disaster survivors and their needs!
- Pray for the leadership of the communities and churches that are impacted by the disaster!
- Pray for our disaster relief volunteers that they will not grow weary in well doing and that they may fulfill their call!
- Pray for the provisions of the means necessary to conduct our disaster relief operations!
- Pray for hearts to be open to receive the Gospel message!
- Pray for safety and security for survivors, responders, and the volunteers responding!
In times of disaster, our hearts and minds are moved to give to support the relief efforts. Mississippi Baptist Disaster Relief asks that you consider financial giving instead of material collections. There are several reasons for this request:
- Material collections are a time and manpower intensive effort and in the case of most disasters, those are things that we just don’t have.
- Needs change rapidly and what is identified one day may not be the needed item just days later when donated items can collected, transported, received and distributed.
- After every major disaster, there are material donations that have to be disposed of in some manner that does not benefit those who have been affected by the disaster.
Financial gifts provide us the flexibility to obtain needed items in a timely manner and meet real needs.
If you feel lead to give toward the Mississippi Baptist Disaster Relief efforts, you may do so online at www.mbcb.org/giving , selecting “Give as an Individual” and then designating your gift to DISASTER RELIEF. Check donations are also accepted. Simply make the check payable to the “Mississippi Baptist Convention Board” designated “MS Disaster Relief” on the memo line, and mail to” MBCB, P.O. Box 530, Jackson, MS 39205-0530.” All financial donations given through Mississippi Baptist Disaster Relief (MBDR) go directly to support relief/recovery efforts in partnership with local Baptist churches and associations in the affected areas.
