In an interview with CBN News Lipscomb said, "we believe it's our local people and the body of Christ that can get there before the government does and can make a difference."
According to Lipscomb, a number of men in local churches have experience with hurricane relief and the ability to reach the most devastated areas quickly: "We have a lot of men that are going just to clear roads and clear trees off of houses. People are still trapped in their homes."
Being just 90 minutes from some of the areas which sustained the most damage, Pensacola has turned into a staging city for several ministry organizations and humanitarians groups, Lipscomb added. "We were spared a lot so we're trying to act as a coordinating, staging area for a lot of organizations."
