I just uploaded some photos from League City, which is one of the “mega feeding sites” in Southeast Texas in the wake of Ike. Right now, three TBM feeding teams are preparing a total of 40,000 meals a day. Those meals are being transported to more than 20 locations. Geoff Hammonds of NAMB was there, as was Leo Smith of Texas Baptist Men and Randel Everett of the BGCT.

To me, Randel summed up what Texas Baptists are doing in Southeast Texas when he looked over the volunteers who already were preparing thousands of dinner meals for people in need. He simply said “This is being the presence of Christ.”

I think that’s all you need to know about what Texas Baptists are doing in Southeast Texas. To check out the pictures, click here. Or view them like I do — in a slideshow — by clicking here.

We’re attempting to go to Galveston Island now to visit with BCFS. If we make it there, we’ll post some more later.

    I’ve been watching news reports all day long that are catching that Baptist disaster relief logo on T-shirts, trucks and trailers. One of the television stations met up with a group of Florida Baptists in Texas City, also operating a mobile kitchen. If I’m not mistaken, we had several Texas groups in Florida back in 2004, during the summer of hurricanes that criscrossed the state. Bread, cast upon the water.

    Do you have information, perhaps through NAMB, about how many different state convention disaster relief teams are now in Texas?

    Lee, I don’t. All I know is about 100 Southern Baptists volunteer teams are working. I do know Idaho, Utah, Iowa are in the state.
