LAKE CHARLES. La. (KT) – Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief teams closed operations in a flood-damaged Louisiana town where they have been serving the past two weeks. The teams have all returned home, said Ron Crow, the organization's director.
Crow was on the ground with them last week.
“My trip there was very beneficial to connect with the teams,” he said. “They were very grateful that came and it gave me the opportunity to meet more of the gold caps, too.”
As teams from Kentucky wrap up their response in Lake Charles, another organization will be coming in behind them, Crow said.
All Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams are standing down, he said.
