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!
