PRAY ON TEAM JESUS! Waiver Sought by Southern Baptist Entity Leaders Granted To Help Puerto Rico Hurricane Recovery


We thank the Lord for all those helping the precious people of Puerto Rico! WE MUST NOT FORGET THEM! Thank you Southern Baptist Convention!


WASHINGTON (BP) – The Biden administration granted a waiver Wednesday (Sept. 28) to aid the recovery by Puerto Rico from the devastation of Hurricane Fiona on the same day Southern Baptist leaders joined others in asking for the action.

Alejandro Mayorkas, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, announced his approval of a “temporary and targeted” waiver of the Jones Act to enable the delivery of diesel fuel to the United States territory, which suffered a massive power outage when Fiona hit Sept. 18. The 1920 federal law limits the transport of goods between U.S. ports to American-flagged and -built ships unless a waiver is granted in the interest of national defense. More Here

Continue to pray for all Team Jesus!


A minimum of 100,000 meals a day will be produced by SBDR volunteers scattered across at least seven locations beginning Oct. 3. More kitchen units will be deployed if there is a need for more meals. Chainsaw and flood recovery teams stand ready to respond to upcoming work requests.

Supplies and volunteers will continue to be sent into the area as needed over the coming months, the spokesman said.

Southern Baptists Prepare for Florida Cleanup, East Coast Response to Ian

From The AP:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Rescuers searched for survivors among the ruins of Florida’s flooded homes from Hurricane Ian while authorities in South Carolina waited for daylight to assess damage from the storm’s second strike as the remnants of one of the strongest and costliest disasters to ever hit the U.S. continued to push north. More Here

I asked Pastor Bill Ruhl, who serves Vice-Chair of FGGAM, to lead is in prayer…………

Today, as we witness the horrific destruction caused by Hurricane Ian’s powerful winds and massive storm surge that decimated so many communities across Florida, let us join together in prayer for all the families who suffered loss and for the first responders and volunteers who answered the call to render aid in this time of need. Jesus, we call upon Your Name and pray according to your Word to provide comfort and peace and a place of refuge in the aftermath of this storm. John 14:27 (AMP) “Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]” Thank You Lord that “You are our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble!” (Psalm 46:1) Amen!

Pastor Bill Ruhl
