Alabama couple shares Christ’s love to flood victims in Serbia


Alabama Baptists David and Joanne Hendon may not hold out long doing physical labor, but they know there is still a place for them on the missions field.

“God will find something for you to do,” Joanne Hendon said during their recent week spent helping with cleanup efforts in Serbia. “Everybody needs to do missions whether it’s across the street or across the world.”

The Hendons, who are members of Northside Baptist Church, Jasper, happened to pick the across-the-world option when the call came for disaster relief needs in the Balkan region of Europe — specifically in Bosnia and Serbia. Unusual amounts of rain have caused devastating floods, leaving thousands homeless and wondering how to begin rebuilding their lives.
