Billy Graham Rapid Response Team Assisting Flood Ravaged Marshall County WV
Billy Graham Rapid Response Team chaplains have deployed to Marshall County, West Virginia, after late July’s flash floods devastated a large area in the northern part of the state. The region was hit by a strong storm that dropped torrential rain throughout the East Coast and mid-Atlantic.
“As families have been affected by the rising floodwaters in West Virginia, it’s the heart of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (RRT) to bring hope in the midst of suffering and loss,” said Jack Munday, international director for the chaplain team.
Crisis-trained RRT chaplains are helping by offering emotional and spiritual care to hurting people, many who have lost a lot. The team is ministering alongside Samaritan’s Purse.
“We just can’t imagine how difficult it is to face trials and suffering like this without having a hope that only God can give us through Jesus Christ,” Munday said.
Please keep all affected by the flooding in your prayers, particularly the first-responders and volunteers who are responding.
The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team is a nationwide network of chaplains in 48 states who are specifically trained to deal with crisis situations.
