BG-RRT Chaplains Deploy to Central New Mexico

from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association


Chaplains with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) deployed to central New Mexico after a massive wildfire spread through the region. For days, hundreds of firefighters had been battling the fire in the village of Ruidoso. Two people died and over two hundred structures have burned.
“This is such a frightening situation for all those involved and our hearts go out to all those who lost their homes,” said Josh Holland, international director of the BG-RRT.
The team of crisis-trained chaplains served alongside the disaster relief organization Samaritan’s Purse to help meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those impacted by the fire.
BG-RRT chaplains are also in Ukraine, offering hope and providing comfort and compassion to families who have been forced to flee their homes.
