Florida: Chaplains are working alongside disaster relief organization Samaritan’s Purse in Taylor and Pasco counties, Fla., and in Valdosta, Ga., to offer emotional and spiritual care as residents recover from the powerful storm.
Florida: A caring embrace can go a long way. Chaplains are there to remind residents they can trust in Jesus Christ, who is waiting to welcome us with open arms and give us peace.

Florida: Floridians are working in the heat and humidity to repair damaged buildings, salvage wet belongings, and remove pine and live oak trees knocked down in the storm. This man took a needed break to recount his experience to chaplains, providing opportunities for the BG-RRT to share the hope that is only found in Jesus Christ.
Georgia: There is a still a lot of work to be done in Valdosta, Ga., a city of 55,000 residents. Hurricane Idalia’s 100 mph winds left much of the area in disarray.
