ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP)--More than 1,500 Southern Baptist disaster relief volunteers from 25 states are cooking meals, cutting up fallen trees and providing childcare in six states in the path of destruction left by Hurricane Ivan from the Florida Panhandle to the Midwest.
    Disaster relief officials now are keeping an eye on the fourth hurricane in a month to threaten Florida as Jeanne, several hundred miles east of the Bahamas, is migrating toward the southeast coast where it could hit early next week.
    “The last few days, we’ve prayed Jeanne wouldn’t come ashore at all, but now it appears to be headed for the east coast of Florida or the Carolinas,” said Jim Burton, disaster relief director of the North American Mission Board, which coordinates the SBC’s response.
