Restoring Hope in Louisiana

The recent flooding in Louisiana has affected over 40,000 homes and has caused the local government to declare disasters in twenty communities. We recently sent team members to see what we can do to help. Though the amount of devastation caused by the flooding is great they came back with wonderful reports of local churches meeting the needs of their neighbors. One pastor who was so moved to impact his community had already led his church to “show up every fifth Sunday of the month with work clothes and tools as they have church in the neighborhood” As much as natural disasters can devastate the lives of our neighbors, we know that God grants his body the opportunity to go and bring His love to their lives.
