The RAIN, the rain, the rain
It's been a trying year for many in our beloved Louisiana as incredible amounts of rain have fallen in such short periods of time, first in March and then, now. Over 30 inches of rain in a week. It's been a silent bomb of sorts since without a great storm to track and no wind damage to report not many were paying much attention as the creeping tropical rains quietly leveled a Trojan horse-like surprise.
The rivers and drainage systems just couldn't handle that much water and massive floods have resulted putting thousands out of their homes and stranded. 20,000 National Guard rescues, many local helpers evacuating their neighbors, 12,000 in shelters, 40,000 businesses and homes have no power, 500 pets rescued, 200 road closures, 1,400 bridges need inspection, entire roads washed out, 13 people dead and much work to be done.

Personal and Specific Aid
We have learned from our many years of post-Katrina ministry that it is important to be specific and personal in our aid.
Consequently, we are in daily contact with local pastors and organizations that are in the affected areas to find out what needs are most pressing. Those needs will be listed under the DONATE and VOLUNTEER pages.
There are 3 main ways you can help:
Pray. Donate. Volunteer.
