Eleven are dead and 30 parishes have been declared disaster areas when as much as two feet of rain fell in a three-day period in Louisiana. The images associated with the flooding are horrendous, with entire communities being destroyed. As our brothers and sisters in Louisiana deal with this, we call for us to be in prayer for them. Additionally, this Sunday we will receive a special offering for them with the proceeds being given to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and specified for Louisiana. As a side note, all funds donated to UMCOR for disaster relief goes there with no money being pulled away for administration. Please be in prayer for the people of Louisiana and for our offering for them. More information.
