More help is on the way to Southern Asia - in the form of hard-working Oklahomans.

Six members of the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief organization left Tuesday morning out of Oklahoma City. Eight others took off from Tulsa. They're all headed to Krabi, Thailand.

They say they're not quite sure what they'll do when they get there. But they all know exactly why they're going.

Wade Robertson: “just being there and helping the people to know others are caring about them.”

Bob Spear: “just go and help them, keep doing it, maybe cry with them a little.”

The first group of Southern Baptist Disaster Relief workers in the tsunami area is set to return Saturday.
