Southern Baptist Relief Services. My partner, Jane, and her family have moved their church home to the First Baptist Church of Homestead. While the schools were closed recently for Wilma, her highschool senior son, Sam, who works for us from time to time, spent the day working at the church helping the Southern Baptist relief services hand out supplies. The church was a distribution depot.

Jane told me that the SBC's relief work makes them the third largest supplier of disaster relief services in the US, only behind the Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

To be more precise, the services are supplied under the auspices of the North American Mission Board of the SBC.
