Double Teaming in Relief Land

This week we were visited by two tremendous teams of men. Headed by their pastor Justin Erickson our first arrivals were from Grace Chapel located in West Liberty, Ohio. They brought in a tractor trailer load full of supplies, clothes, and food to aid us in our relief efforts. It took about seven of us seven hours in the intense southern heat to unload the benevolent cargo. Pray along with us that we can put these goods in the hands of those who need it most. It is a beautiful event to watch Providence move in our lives as new family members in the Body are sent our way in what we hope will become lifelong friendships. To all the people in Ohio who supported this effort, thank you. We look forward to the many evangelistic mission trips we can co-sponsor in the near future.




The next set of relief workers arrived yesterday from Grace Community Church in Michigan pastored by Steve Krogh. At mid-afternoon I was greeted by ten men with tools, expertise, and great hearts. They came to help us clean out and gut some homes as well as put a new roof on our church. We are almost done with that and are trying to beat Rita's threat in the early a.m. as reports say that she will hit somewhere West of us. All of Grace Community's men have been wonderful and we look forward to working more together to help our church and community recover before either Rita forces them home or their stay has expired. We will be organizing more work crews to help clear out yards and properties. It is very late and I've got to be up in a few hours so that's it for now. I will talk later about our neighborhood van project whereby we hit the communities here literally street by street meeting needs and bearing witness to the wonderful gospel of Christ.
Stay tuned.

  • Rita caused wind driven water and tides to go up. Mild flooding and some rain. In Slidell it was/is very mild, mostly just a bit windy.
