DALLAS—A seven-member Texas Baptist Men disaster relief team is bound for the Republic of Georgia to feed people affected by the fighting there.

The team will help set up a kitchen and feed people in Gori, Georgia.

Russian troops that recently moved into the country have pulled back to a position six miles outside Gori and continue to control access to Georgia’s key port at Poti, according to the AFP news service.

Russians also are manning positions in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, two provinces that have sought independence from Georgia. The Russians also have left “peacekeepers” in a buffer zone they created inside Georgia.

To support the emergency food service effort, send checks designated “disaster relief” to Texas Baptist Men, 5351 Catron, Dallas 75227.
