We arrived safely around noon today about 24 hours after the tornadoes first hit Freeport, Grand Bahama. It is unbelievable to be invited to be the first people on the ground to respond to this disaster on behalf of the Bahama Methodist Church. Since this is a relatively new effort, we were demonstrating that the planes and people and tools can be brought together and put in the right places quickly. It is also an honor to be working the Bahama Methodist Habitat folks who are professional and well connected so that they can really get things done.
The team from Concord and Church Street includes experienced team leaders and youth with lots of construction experience and medical personnel. We are ready to do anything they ask.
