Mission Prayer Moment-Southern Baptist Disaster Relief

SBDR is a nation-wide ministry that sends people to disaster-ridden areas of our country for relief efforts. Not only do these volunteers provide physical aid, but they also provide spiritual aid as well. Because of your offerings to Missions, Hoffmantown was recently able to help provide ham radios for the New Mexico SBDR team. Members from our own church were part of the communications personnel for the relief teams who were recently deployed to area affected by hurricanes Laura and Sally. During this last trip, hundreds of people prayed with team members to receive Christ and many rededicated their lives to Him. We thank God for our disaster relief! If you are interested in getting involved in disaster relief efforts, contact us at
