THANK YOU everyone for your prayers while I was in NJ helping with the disaster relief. It is truly a bad situation for most of those that live within a mile of the coast of NJ. They had at least a 15ft surge of ocean water that made it over the sand barriers and flooded most houses up to 4-6 ft. The greatest need that most in the region need now is getting their homes or basements gutted out soon so that mold/mildew does not overtake them and so they can get to the task of rebuilding and moving back. Hundreds of homes affected. It was a real blessing to serve with a great team from Oklahoma. They were all a very hardworking and efficient bunch well equipped for the task. The Oklahoma Baptist group was tremendous. They had over 120 workers on site. They had a large food service crew, a chainsaw crew, and a mud out crew. Most were working with the food kitchen serving 30,000 meals a day. I saw a lot of the American Red Cross as well. Many out of state power crews working all over the place setting new poles and restoring power. I had to detour many times due to downed power lines on the roads I was trying to go on. Most of the gasoline shortages were in the coastal areas. A lot of stations either without gas or with long lines, but gas is readily available more inland. I heard as I was leaving that power was going to be restored to the vast majority of the state by today. I can not see how the coastal regions will have power for a while yet, but most of NJ should be back in power by now. Pray for the people whose houses were destroyed or flooded that they can find housing and help to get their lives restored.
