On Sunday August 29th Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana. This storm was one of the most destructive storms to hit the US since Katrina. Southeast Louisiana has been greatly impacted. Vineyard Church of New Orleans will be hosting teams to clear debris, tarp roofs, and gut houses. We are also accepting Monetary Donations and Boxes of Hope.
We know many individuals and churches are ready to step in and lend a hand but please remember, like every disaster we have worked, this is a marathon not a sprint! We welcome you to join with us in prayer and work to come along side the churches and people in the South-Central Region as we begin the process of healing.
There will be many needs and a lot of work to do for weeks and months ahead. On behalf of the South-Central Region and all the affected churches, thank you so very much for your desire to come alongside the churches of our region during these difficult days. We, at Mercy Response, exist solely to work alongside Vineyard churches and communities in distress following natural disasters. We would not be able to respond without the help of the larger Vineyard family and we are grateful for your support.
We will continue to update our website and Facebook page as more information becomes available.
Thanks again for your tremendous response! May God bless you and your churches for your faithfulness to your calling.
