ABHMS Disaster Response Travelogue


American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) takes American Baptists on the road with ABHMS Disaster-relief Ministries as it assesses the damage and connects with survivors and others on the ground in hurricane-ravaged areas from Louisiana and Texas to Florida and Puerto Rico.

Through photographs and videos as well as written and recorded words, follow along with ABHMS Communications Director Susan Gottshall, as she documents, via an online travelogue and audio journal, the sights and sounds encountered as she travels with Victoria Goff, ABHMS associate director, Mission Advancement and Passionary Movement, through areas severely affected recently by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Through daily on-scene reporting, American Baptists will be transported as they see and hear from ABHMS staff and partners interacting with residents, first responders, volunteers and officials in locations that include Lake Charles, La.; Dickinson and Houston, Texas; St. Petersburg and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; and San Juan and other places in Puerto Rico.

Come along with ABHMS as it takes the first step necessary in helping to rebuild, restore and renew communities and lives severely affected by the recent string of hurricanes in the United States and Puerto Rico.
