S oon after the founding of Adore Ministries in Houma, LA, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. Our missionaries and volunteers quickly mobilized to serve its victims.

Twelve years and many storms later, we find ourselves in the midst of another natural disaster. Many of our very own mission neighborhoods are suffering the most. Our heart has always been to serve the least and the suffering and right now, like many of you, we are restless to get to work. We call this Project Starfish, and are focusing on the immediate needs of those in our 10-foot radius.  Join us in prayer, through your financial gifts, and in service!

We've been here before. We are gonna make it. We have great hope that God works all things for good.

Saturday, September 16 UPDATE

This morning the mighty few gathered and were sent out.  Each destination had a story to tell and a job to do.  The neighbors that we served today weren't just home owners, they weren't just residents, they were people suffering tremendous loss that left them feeling lonely and gave our teams an opportunity to love them.  Today, six homes where flood waters once stood had loving people reaching out to lend a hand and give encouragement.  Six starfish got tossed back into the sea today.  Those six matter and they are grateful, and the rest of us are forever touched.  Today was a good day.  Today we few were enough, we did what we could, we gave what we had, we loved.  To those of you that are supporting us through your prayers, your donations and your encouragement, thank you.  Together, we make a great team!

Tomorrow, we rest.
This week, we move!  If you have ANY availability on a weekday between 9 and 6 please text Meagan 361-225-9193.  All hands on deck for these moves!  We don't have details yet as we are waiting for the details to be worked out.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, please have them fill out a Request Help form at www.adoreministries.com/harvey  and know that we are getting to them as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your patience and the opportunity to serve.
Distribution this week will be very limited as we get set up in our new place.  Crews will be sent from the new office next Saturday.
Peace of Christ be with us all.

    We have a house by the Woodlands open to anyone who needs shelter! There are only like 2 bed and a blow up mattress but there’s a pull-out couch and other couches if needed

    While I can’t be there the physically lend a hand – Know of our prayers from Colorado. I hope the funds donated can bring a small amount of relief to those the Lord will lead to your care (or just a few beers to enjoy after a hard days work). AMDG.

        Some of their neighborhood is flooded – but they sit on the high ground so they are hosting neighbors.

      Thanks John! We’ll be sending all volunteer communication through our volunteer sign up form so make sure you fill that out.

    I’m helping coordinate efforts for the seminarians at St. Mary’s Seminary. Once the bayou drops down a bit and we’re able to get out of our area, we’ll have lots of hands ready to help on the ground.

    I have made monetary donations but I also have items I would like to donate. Is there anywhere I can get these out your way? I am in VA so if you know of anyone going out that way I can give to them.

      Hi Lynn! Thank you! Not that we know of, but we’ll let you know if we here. This will be a long recovering process so the need will be for a while.

    I live in Albuquerque, NM, and it has been on my heart to come out and help, and if possible try to bring supplies. Are you accepting out-of-state help? Thank you!

  9. Michelle Bishop

    I am a youth minister in Sulphur Springs Texas and my kids want to DO something. We can pray and send a little money, but are open to suggestions. I know rebuilding is long term. Maybe this coming summer we could come lend a hand.
