SUPER STORM SANDY DISASTER RECOVERY/RELIEF IN ALLENWOOD, NEW JERSEY

This fairly extensive gallery was created as a photo journal to document the Biltmore Baptist Church Disaster Relief Team's May 5-11 2013 efforts in the Allenwood, NJ area. The team of 14 men and women worked on several homes, repairing damage caused by Superstorm Sandy.

Biltmore Baptist Church is located near Asheville, in Western North Carolina. Various disaster recovery/rebuilding teams from the church have been active for many years, in many areas of the country. The teams are part of the North Carolina Baptist Builders, a ministry of North Carolina Men and Women.

As you look at some of these images, you may see a few hot, dirty and tired team members, as the work is hard and the hours long. But, if you look closely at these images, you will also see a lot of happy faces, smiles and laughter. The work may be hard, but it is ALWAYS rewarding to the folks lucky enough to serve as the "hands and feed of Jesus". As we work to help disaster victims with their physical needs, we also have many opportunities to address their spiritual needs, sharing the Grace of our God, who loved us enough to send His only Son to die on a cross for the redemption of our sins and our salvation.

THAT'S WHY WE GO ..... THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!

NOTE FOR THOSE UNFAMILIAR WITH PBASE: Click on the first image to enlarge it. Then keep hitting "next" at the top-right of your screen to see the rest of the photos. Be sure to read the captions/comments below the images. On some computer screens (depending on your settings), you may have to arrow down under the images to see the captions/comments, particularly on the vertically oriented shots.
