Fr. Jim's Log 9/10
Someone asked why are you doing all this? ( hurricane relief)
“If one part suffers, every part suffers, I one part is honored every part rejoices with it." 1 Cor 12:26.
We are not just one person or one church. As Anglicans, we are a communion, a world wide body of believers who come and stand with our brothers and sisters in times of suffering: To share with those in need our blood, sweat, tears and our prayers. God promises to neither leave you nor forsake you. Joshua 1:5 Deuteronomy 31:6
From the north shore, FaithPointe provided 22 buckets today to Good Shepherd Church in Metairie, with an additional 40 more coming tomorrow. We delivered our last 100 dinners to the hospital and first Responders today on the Northshore.
Jaques Walker got us invited into the Tangipahoa parish disaster response group to find out the needs in that community. First meeting is Monday. FaithPointe is moving away from the flood buckets and into women and children hygiene bags. We feel it’s a need not being met.
Good Shepherd handed out 500 (Operation BBQ Relief) meals today and all the cleaning buckets we had. Thanks to Holy Cross Anglican in Baton Rouge, and John Curtis Christian School in River Ridge, we will continue to hand out meals. We were running low on food clamshells and could not find any on the north or south shore. Thank you Father Ernie for locating them In Baton Rouge and finding someone to meet me half way. We also received a very generous donation from John Curtis Christian School in River Ridge. When they heard of our need for additional clamshells to serve meals, they found over 300 in their school cafeteria that they immediately got into our hands this evening.
I received a text from Ms. Mary at the North American Lutheran Church. She is sending a 26’ box truck full of supplies on Monday from Ohio and 200 more flood buckets next Thursday. Thank you so very much we couldn’t do this without you!!!
We are also being asked if we can help in the Lafitte area below New Orleans and I will report more as I get the info.
