The recent catastrophic flooding that struck Louisiana was indeed historic claiming 13 lives and leaving thousands homeless has left churches  pleading for help as they try to recover from the deadly disaster.  According to a new report from the Christian Post, “Within 36 hours, more than 27 inches of rain fell in Baker, just northeast of Baton Rouge, and directly into the Amite River.

In less time, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers were serving survivors with compassion in the face of crisis. They are right now delivering clean, safe water, warm nutritious meals and the love of Christ as they seek to advance the Gospel,” said an appeal on the website of the Southern Baptist Convention. “You can help the survivors, and the disaster relief volunteers providing aid, today with a generous gift that will help bring healing and the hope of the Gospel. Please prayerfully consider how you can help now,” it urged. CONTINUE
