MONETTE – Disaster relief teams from Mississippi County Baptist Association, Blythville, and Central Baptist Church, Jonesboro, have deployed to Monette in response to recent flooding in the area.
Joe Garner, Arkansas Baptist State Convention disaster relief director and associational missions strategist, said the teams are doing temporary roof repair and chainsaw recovery.
According to Garner, Arkansas disaster relief volunteers are asessing damage this morning and should have a better idea of area's needs by the end of the day.
First Baptist Church, Monette, is the staging area for disaster relief opporations in the effected area of Craighead County. The church will feed volunteers but no feeding units will be deployed.
