Hurricane Ida caused tremendous damage across the Louisiana Gulf Coast as it made landfall on the 16 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. We want to continue to pray for those impacted by the storm. Here are some specific prayer points we obtained from our partner churches in New Orleans.
- Pray for those impacted by the power outages.
- Pray for those impacted by the flooding.
- Pray for the thousands of families who have yet to be able to return to their homes.
- Pray for safety for those responding.
Send Relief is a vital partner for us in many areas of ministry. Disaster relief is one of those areas. They have had credentialed individuals on the ground since the day after the storm. They are providing great avenues to give as they are already sending much-needed relief supplies to those impacted by the storm. You can give through Send Relief here.
We are currently in conversations with our partners in New Orleans about sending a team to help with the relief efforts. Right now, the biggest obstacle is the lack of power in the city. Once we are able to confirm lodging and that we will have access to New Orleans we will begin planning a trip. Check back for more details.
