NCMO prepares for Matthew 

A powerful and potentially devastating storm is heading toward the southeastern United States after unloading serious damage in Haiti, Cuba and surrounding islands. North Carolina Baptist Men (NCBM) are poised to deploy to areas of need as quickly as Hurricane Matthew moves out and government agencies open the door for disaster relief agencies to come in these damaged islands. But there is the potential for equal or even worse destruction in the coastal states. Again, NCBM is ready to serve.

How is this possible? How can they respond so quickly? Two main reasons come to my mind. First, volunteers have been in training all year long for such a need. Second, North Carolina Baptist churches have asked their members to give generously to the North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO), which is the sole source of NCBM’s disaster ministry support. Churches are not waiting for disasters to strike before taking an offering. They have the wisdom, compassion and foresight to help NCBM be prepared.

You can still give to NCMO – and I hope N.C. Baptists will give even more generously when they see the tremendous need. This Sunday, put a special gift in the offering plate and mark it for the outstanding ministry of NCBM! Then pray for those who have experienced loss through Hurricane Matthew. Also, pray for the safety and effectiveness of the compassionate, gospel ministry of the volunteers who serve faithfully in disaster relief.

In this week’s Biblical Recorder I have written an editorial about the Great Commission titled, “Acts 1:8 gives no percentages.” Think about it. There are so many discussions in Baptist life about what percentage should be allocated for associational ministries, seminaries, state conventions and various mission ministries of the SBC. Feel free to share your comments at the bottom of the article on the website or email me.
