DALLAS (BP) – Texas Baptist Men flood recovery team leader Art Brandenburg was greeted Aug. 26 when he arrived in Balch Springs to help homeowners recover from flooding in the Dallas suburb.

“One of the men came out and our vehicles are parked across the street in a field,” Brandenburg said, “and he walked up to me a while ago and he said right there, ‘God’s vehicles. That’s God coming right there. I see those vehicles, I see God coming to help us.’”

The man and his siblings were trying to clear damage from the home of their father, a senior citizen with medical issues.

“I met with his adult children. So we’ve been visiting with them and finding out what their needs are and trying to help them out where we can,” Brandenburg told Baptist Press. “We’re here because we feel like God called us to be here. We get up in the morning, we don’t know where we’re going. We just go where God sends us.”

Brandenburg led a flood recovery team of 15 men in the first response to the flooding from the 100-year rainfall that befell Dallas/ Fort Worth Aug. 21-22, dumping 9 inches of rain within a 24-hour period.
