After the storm passed, Jacq and I were privledged to assist Healing Place Church, in conjunction with Operation Blessing, Samaritan’s Purse, and other aid groups, distribute much needed supplies after the storm. This is a church that is truly mobilized to meet the needs of the community. It was awesome to be a part of it all. My mom is a member at HPC and we love this church. They are a great group of people. We look forward to deepening our connection with Dan and Pastor Dino in the days to come! Check out there blogs to see all the work these guys have been doing to ease the pain of the people of South Louisiana. I love their “Servolution” mentality. This is the church in action.
We are grateful to everyone who prayed for us. Our family is one of the few to have electricity as of yesterday. Most of the southeast part of the state is living off of generator power, bottled water, and ice. We were without power for 5 days and it was enough, especially since it’s love bug season. Those things are stinkin annoying!! If you’ve never lived in the south, you won’t know what I’m talking about, but believe me. They swarm and they stick to you when you are outside.
We are trying to bring some normalcy back to our lives, especially as we are preparing for our upcoming trip to Mexico. Yet there are many who still need your prayers! Keep praying for Louisiana. I’m gonna see what I can do to help some people out.
I’m so excited about the news that my friend Michelle Ziner is sitting on that has to do with dozens of world Christian relief organizations partnering together, the city of Harrisburg, NC, and the big unveiling of a new ministry! You will have to stay tuned to find out more in the coming days and weeks.
