The day after Christmas 2004, one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded struck off the coast of Indonesia and triggered a tsunami that swept into multiple nations bordering the Indian Ocean, wiping away entire communities and bringing devastation. An estimated 228,000 people were killed and nearly two million were left homeless in a dozen nations including Thailand, Sri Lanka, and India. Hardest hit, though, was Aceh Province, Indonesia, which bore the tsunami’s terrible brunt and took the lives of some 169,000. As international disaster relief groups flew in to offer aid to stricken countries and communities, Southern Baptist volunteers were among those responding with compassion and care.
By mid-February 2005, contributions from Southern Baptist churches and individuals surpassed $10 million—an unprecedented amount—to be used for tsunami-related aid projects across South and Southeast Asia. “We were there early, and we were there with people who knew the language and culture, supported by volunteers who [met] needs,” said Don Dent, then IMB’s regional leader for the Pacific Rim. Southern Baptist volunteers fed the hungry, met medical needs, cleared mud out of houses, and dug mass graves for villagers. Dent explained that Christians serving these Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist communities, were having an impact and asked Southern Baptists in the US to keep praying “that God will open a door that no man can shut.”
The local government funded art projects in the tsunami survivor camps. Southern Baptists provided ongoing relief work for a full year after the tsunami, bringing food every day to a number of camps, as well as doing children’s activities and English language classes. Southern Baptists also provided funding for fishermen to rebuild their boats and replace the nets they lost in the tsunami.

The Asia-Pacific region is home to the majority of the world’s 1.8 billion Muslims, while the Middle East and North Africa are predominantly Muslim. In the US, Muslims account for only about 1.1 percent of the total population, though communities are concentrated in certain areas of the country. Southern Baptists in the US have the opportunity to build relationships with their Muslim neighbors. Building trust and loving as Jesus loves is a first step toward gospel proclamation.

Since the earlier photos were taken, Pepper has spent more than two decades offering hope to the hurting in Africa. Through the years, he and his wife, Sally, have spent countless hours at the bedsides of the hurting, leading them to the pages of the Bible and bringing them to lasting hope in Christ. They have discipled university students. They have helped new mothers get on their feet and find faith. They have started AIDS clinics and planted churches. They have seen people find spiritual life, and they have buried the ones whom physical death has overcome.
