    ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP)--Southern Baptist disaster relief response is not contingent on government reimbursement, according Robert E. (Bob) Reccord, president of the entity that coordinates the SBC’s national disaster response.

    In a front-page story in The Washington Post Sept. 27, Reccord said, “Volunteer labor is just that: volunteer. We would never ask for the government to pay for it.”
