Chain Saw Crews Needed

If your church or men’s group is looking for a great missions project, let me suggest bringing a team to South Louisiana to help with disaster recovery. The Greater Baton Rouge area lost a lot of trees and many people are in need of help removing them from their homes and yards. This also is a great way to help a local church meet the needs of its community in the wake of Hurricane Gustav.

If you don’t know where to go or who to call, let me suggest Fellowship Church in Prairieville, LA. They are located on Hwy. 73, near I-10, just south of Baton Rouge, LA. Our church sent a group over last Saturday. We removed four trees from three different lawns for people that could not have done it on their own. We were able to pray with and encourage the families as well. I know from experience (click here) that when you are in the midst of a disaster, those trees seem a lot bigger than they actually are. Serving in this way can give someone immediate hope in a time of crisis.

Email me if you need more information. Or call Fellowship Church at 225-673-4735 or 225-572-8933. For other disaster relief opportunities contact the Louisiana Baptist Convention at 1.877.487.4658.

    Don’t know if you remember me: I’m Matthew Perry, pastor of Boone’s Creek Baptist in Lexington, KY. We sent a team of six down to your church to help back in April 2006. I may give you a call sometime next week and we can see what needs to be done.
