Hurricane Katrina – 10 Years Later

New Orleans After Katrina

It’s hard to believe that it has already been ten years since Hurricane Katrina wiped out much of the Gulf Coast. This is a profound time for me. Katrina was when it all started. Ten years ago as I watched New Orleans destroyed by this storm I was overcome with an urgent desire to help. I watched on TV and saw mothers holding babies and crying for help. I saw people swimming in the streets of my hometown, and I was driven to action.

The devastation was vast and complex, but in that a vision was born. Without a real plan in place, I went and we fed people, thousands of them in the midst of that destruction. In the ten years since Mercy Chefs has served over a million meals to those whose lives have been disrupted by natural disasters. I stand amazed at what God has done and all that we have accomplished together.

August 23rd Mercy Chefs is heading back to Biloxi, Mississippi and New Orleans, Louisiana to feed volunteer building crews as they work for an entire week, around the clock, to rebuild homes for families still permanently displaced by Katrina, ten years later. It is going to be a joy to see these families finally in a home of their own again for the first time since Katrina hit, and together we get to be a part of it all. Our team is faithfully preparing for this deployment and honored by the opportunity to serve, but we still need support to cover our expenses for this outreach. To be a part of this mission, click on the word donate or on the donate button at the top of this page to make a contribution of any amount.
