DALLAS—Texas Baptist Men (TBM) is currently responding to needs in North Texas following serious storms and tornados on Sun., Oct. 20. A tornado touched down in North Dallas, causing damage for several miles across the city. TBM activated a chainsaw crew of 11 people on Monday morning to the Lake Highlands area for disaster relief. 

“The Dallas tornado tore a hole in our hearts as it ripped through the city,” said Mickey Lenamon, TBM executive director. “It rocked people’s world. This morning, we’re providing help, hope and healing in Jesus’ name to people and families affected by this tragedy.”

TBM assessors were sent to Preston Hollow and Midlothian to determine damage and needs. Plans are underway to launch additional units to the DFW Metroplex in the coming days. Teams will be housed at First Baptist Richardson.  

Primera Iglesia Bautista Dallas suffered a significant impact to its facilities. Area Representative Steve Dominy was in touch with Pastor Ricardo Brambila on Monday morning and asked for prayers for the church moving forward. 

Churches and individuals in need of assistance can call TBM at 972-639-7215. To give to support the work of TBM, visit tbmtx.org/donate
