SHAWNEE—In the wake of severe tornado damage at Oklahoma Baptist University on the evening of April 19, Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief (DR) was already on the ground assessing damage and seeking to help by the following morning.
Jason Yarbrough, state director for Oklahoma Baptist DR indicated the ministry volunteers will be serving at OBU and other areas in Oklahoma hard-hit by tornado damage.
“Our Oklahoma Baptist DR-trained volunteers will be part of a coordinated response to this tornado devastation in Shawnee and other areas,” he said. “We are heartbroken for our OBU family—and for our friends and neighbors who were affected across Oklahoma—we will be working to provide all the help and hope people need.”
