Disaster News Network: Cleanup progresses in TX

Most of damage caused by Claudette was caused mainly by powerful wind gusts, which in some cases were stronger than 100 mph, said Bob Dixon, executive director emeritus of the Texas Baptist Men. Meanwhile, volunteers were working to fix the roof of the Central Baptist Church of Port Lavaca, which had a hole punched in it "the size of a car," Dixon said. Another piece of property, the Texas Baptist Encampment Palacios By the Sea, also took a big hit and incurred millions of dollars worth of damage, according to Dixon.The site was also the home of a summer camp and 400 kids who had to be evacuated to the First Baptist Church of Bay City.Despite the evacuation, Dixon said, the camp continued, and volunteers have been preparing meals for the children until the camp session is finished at the end of this week. Fixing up the Encampment, however, is going to take a lot of work."Half of it just blew away," Dixon said.Baptist chainsaw crews from Decatur are currently cleaning up damage there and elsewhere in Palacios, he said. A more numerous groups of chainsaw gangs is beginning work in Goliad, Dixon said, where "all the trees are down in practically every yard."

In the process, they deleted the entire article on BGCT board representation, said Texas Baptist Men President Bob Dixon. Dixon, Andreason and Crews all said the committee needed to revisit that issue, to make sure the bylaws provided direct representation of the BGCT on the board.

Texas Baptists heeded a call to minister to people in the midst of crisis in 1967, said Bob Dixon, executive director emeritus of the Texas Baptist Men, known affectionately as "the daddy of disaster relief" for the Dallas-based organization."After Hurricane Beulah hit in 1967, Texas Baptists assigned me the task of finding ways to minister to victims of natural disasters besides just sending money," Dixon said.In the early days, Baptist men boxed up donated groceries according to family size and distributed food, he said.When a tornado ripped through Lubbock in 1972, the Texas Baptist Men set to work in an empty shopping center and began serving hot meals.Dixon said most people are dumbfounded when they discover the Texas Baptist Men are not covered under anybody's budget."We are funded by volunteer gifts," he said."Everything we have is from people who love Jesus.We work off the heartbeat of the people.We've gotten checks from all religious denominations.Checks for $10 or $50 - when you count them all up just like you count all God's people up, it's enough for a ministry."The Texas Baptist Men's mission is not to preach, but to show the compassionate nature of Christ, Dixon said."We don't go to places where people need help and say, ‘Now before we feed you, we're going to preach to you,' " he said."These volunteers show the love, compassion, care and concern of Christ through their work.From that, people can see and understand our ministry."Most Texans may not know about the work of the Texas Baptist Men, but Dixon wants to make sure Odessa residents know about the Permian Basin Baptist Men."The people out there in West Texas need to know what this Permian Basin unit is doing," he said."That unit was the hub of relief efforts in Arizona.West Texas can be proud of that, but West Texas can also commit more people to that unit."
