Long Island, N.Y.-When our Colorado Disaster Relief team left for New York on December 7th, we were embarking on a 2,000 mile journey. Thirty hours later, we arrived in Long Island expecting to do chain saw work, but were told we were needed to help mud-out and clean-up homes.
What a blessing it was to have such a great team of volunteers that could leave things behind to go and assist those in need. The Colorado Baptist Disaster Relief team consisted of Gay Williams, Vanguard Church, Co Springs; Sam Bonham, North Cheyenne Baptist, Wyoming, Fred & Jeanne Hoffman, Ken Caryl Baptist, Littleton, Rich Nanny, Riverside - Castle Rock; Jonathan Young, Riverside Baptist, Denver; Dennis Belz, Longs Peak Church, Longmont. We were joined by Larry Baker and Richard Perrine from the Maryland/Delaware Disaster Relief.
