Responding to Flooding in Louisiana

When you read the numbers, your eyes literally do a double take.  There are 137,000 residents in Livingston Parish and over 105,000 of those residents lost their homes. The devastation in the parish just east of Baton Rouge is unfathomable.

“I don’t think I’ve fully comprehended it. said an emotional Rev. Jackie King. “I’ve seen people arrive here to the church and say, ‘I just spent $90 on cleaning supplies with $90 I don’t have.’ I’ve stood with church members as they stare at their home and silently ask ‘Where do we start?’ as they stand in their driveway absolutely paralyzed.  

 
-from the Louisiana Conference web page, August 21, 2016  Read More here.
 
Torrential August rains have caused devastating flooding in Louisiana and the cleanup efforts are just beginning.  In a video on Facebook, Bishop Cynthia Harvey explains that peoples’ lives have been devastated and many people have lost everything. Recovery will require patience as the cleaning and rebuilding will take months or years.  She asks for our prayers as the people of Louisiana deal with the flooding – prayers for patience, position and posture to deal with things now and in the future.  She has seen visions of hope as people help one another, but prayer is a great need.
 
Financial donations are also welcome, and UMCOR has been on site delivering nearly 3,000 cleanup buckets with another 2,000 ready to be shipped to the most vulnerable places.  Teams are also assembling even more cleanup buckets to meet the demand.  
 
Louisiana experienced massive flooding earlier this spring, and UMCOR had just approved a long-term disaster-response grant when the latest storms hit, affecting some of the same areas.  Several Methodist churches have been converted to shelters and UMCOR is collaborating with FEMA and other disaster response agencies.
 
If you want to help, please pray for the people of Louisiana daily.  You may also write a check to BUMC and put “Louisiana” in the memo line and we will forward the funds for you.  If you would like to donate via credit card, please go to the UMCOR donation link
.  At this time only trained teams of volunteers are needed in Louisiana.
