These are images from the flooding in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where floodwaters inundated 1,300 city blocks and displaced more than 26,000 people.

Three Texas Baptist Men response units were dispatched to the Midwest by the Southern Baptist Convention North American Mission Board. The units work side-by-side with Red Cross volunteers to provide lunch and dinner daily to displaced flood victims.
