Amid fallen trees & debris, Baptist teams carry hope
PALM COAST, Fla. (BP) -- Though tragedy has been a recurrent theme in Holocaust survivor Margaret Oettinger's life, so has hope. When a large tree fell on her property during Hurricane Matthew's destruction, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers, including Florida Baptist chainsaw teams, were there to provide help and hope. As volunteers cut away the tree, Oettinger became one of many helped by SBDR teams in recent days. And the teams didn't just come bearing chainsaws. They came with prayer as well.
