If you want to see where ministry and mission converge, the bayou country of Louisiana is the home of the primary U.S. depot for the United Methodist Committee on Relief, where 2,600 volunteers pass through annually to process and ship $7 million worth of supplies and relief kits distributed throughout the world. Located in Baldwin, 90 miles from New Orleans’ strategic seaport, Sager Brown Depot has been a hub of UMCOR missions since Hurricane Andrew hit the Gulf Coast in 1992.
