 Director's Message 

In this season of our Savior’s birth I want to say, “Thank You!” to each of you who have given of yourself by serving others in need this year, and those who have gone before us over the past 20+ years.  New Mexico Baptist Disaster Relief can only exist by your faithfulness and commitment to step out and do the “good works” that God has prepared specifically for you.


For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.  Ephesians 2:10


Over the past 16 months NMBDR volunteers have responded across cities and towns, across New Mexico, across the nation, and even across the ocean to bring Help, Hope, and Healing to those suffering loss.  By investing yourself in helping people recover from widespread or personal disaster and grow in Christ you have lived His command to let the light of life in you shine before others for the glory of God.


In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.  Matthew 5:16


Now we need God’s people who are called by His name to join with us in His ministry.  For our volunteers to Go, Serve, and Share in Jesus’ name…for even the least of these requires your financial support.  NMBDR is funded by your donations and the cost of deployments, operations, equipment, and supplies requires your ongoing contributions. 


We are asking for your support in two areas: general operating funds and a new combination restroom/shower trailer to support our work.  To make your donations you may send a check to the Baptist Convention of New Mexico.  On your check designate Disaster Relief Operations or Disaster Relief Trailer.  To donate online please click on the link below, use the “select a fund” dropdown menu to specify DISASTER RELIEF, and use the “optional menu” to specify GENERAL OPERATIONS or RESTROOM/SHOWER TRAILER.

As a reminder, if you have an IRA and are taking your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) you can make charitable donations to 501C3 organizations as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) and not pay taxes on that distribution. Check with your tax advisor or IRA brokerage.


Over the coming days you will be bombarded with requests for donations.  We ask that you prayerfully consider how God would have you invest in the lives of others what He has entrusted to you.


Again, our sincere appreciation to all of you who are working diligently for the Kingdom.

Much will be required of everyone who has been given much. And even more will be expected of the one who has been entrusted with more.  Luke 12:48
