The "Other" work that needed to be done, May 21-25, 2018

I got the opportunity to go to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to volunteer with Franklin Grahams Samaritan's Purse to help rebuild houses damaged by flooding in 2016. The storm produced over 30 inches of rain in 48 hours, overwhelming the drainage system in place. Over 20 parishes (counties for everyone else) were inundated with flood water. There were many aspects to the trip other than rebuilding house. It was also about rebuilding people. Every morning started with a huge breakfast and lots of coffee, but before work we always had peer lead devotions to give us something to think about during our time working. In an effort to cut down on costs for professional services, like room service, laundry, catering, etc the volunteers help with KP duty, meals are prepared and served buffet style, and laundry is done off site. Samaritan's Purse employees are great stewards of the donations given, whether financial contributions or physical labor. There was always plenty to eat, and little to nothing went to waste. I was also lucky enough to spend some time with my parents while I was only a couple hours from them instead of almost a full day away. I got to eat some crawfish too!

Dedication Ceremony , May 24, 2018

I got the opportunity to go to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to volunteer with Franklin Grahams Samaritan's Purse to help rebuild houses damaged by flooding in 2016. The storm produced over 30 inches of rain in 48 hours, overwhelming the drainage system in place. Over 20 parishes (counties for everyone else) were inundated with flood water. On Thursday of our trip, we got the honor of attending a home dedication where the homeowner is officially given their home back. In the dedication ceremony, the homeowner is given many other thing besides the keys to the house. They are first and foremost given a brand new family Bible, because God gets all the glory for what was done. We can do nothing without Him. Next they are given a photo book of all the photos, start to finish, of all the workers who volunteered their time and energy. Then they are given a book of inspiration with words of encouragement from those volunteers and staff. Lastly, the outside walls of the house are anointed with prayers of peace, strength, joy, hope, and love to all who enter the house. It was such a moving ceremony for everyone in attendance to see the homeowner receiving his life back.

The "Jessie" crew hard at work, May 21-25, 2018

I got the opportunity to go to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to volunteer with Franklin Grahams Samaritan's Purse to help rebuild houses damaged by flooding in 2016. The storm produced over 30 inches of rain in 48 hours, overwhelming the drainage system in place. Over 20 parishes (counties for everyone else) were inundated with flood water. The home I was honored to help with was not in a flood zone, but still had 4ft of water inside. The owner had such a detrimental experience. Her home had been involved in a fire prior to the flood. The insurance company had given her the $40k needed by the contractor she hired to repair the fire damage. The contractor took the money and fled the country to Honduras. Then about a month later, the flood hit. She didn't have flood insurance, because it wasn't previously needed. The home owner was there helping out with the repairs and was such an inspiration to us all with her presence and encouraging words, even in a time of great loss.

Cross Over Country, Baton Rouge, LA May 24, 2018.

I got the opportunity to go to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to volunteer with Franklin Grahams Samaritan's Purse to help rebuild houses damaged by flooding in Baton Rouge. While there I snapped this photo of the cross that stood tall over our accommodations at the Greenwell Springs Baptist Church. The stories and experiences from this trip will stay with me for a lifetime.

Hebrews 10:24-25(ESV)
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." Christ Family Outreach Church, does exactly that, treats you like family and reaches out a hand to the community it serves for the glory of God. Love and good works can only be accomplished and shown when we gather together. The Bible says in Matthew 18:20 "For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” The feeling of being "home" and part of the community in which I lived was lost to me for years. I have had places to stay, but it never really had that "home" feeling. I'm slowly being reintroduced to the idea of inclusion in the community around me, mostly due to getting involved with a church again. It's definitely true, you are built up and strengthened when you don't forsake the church. We draw off the strengths of others, and provide our strengths to those who need them. Something I've been missing for 15 years.
