I returned Sunday night from New Orleans and the need for disaster response is still great there.

I am predicting about two more weeks of food service. Strangely enough, there is not much tree damage, so no chain saws are needed this time.

Volunteers are still needed to work the feeding operation.  The group leaving this Thursday, September 6th, is full.  We need a crew of 40 to leave on the following Thursday, September 13th from Boys Ranch Town in Edmond at 8:00 am.

Contact Gene Jones at 580-550-0548 to let him know that you can go. Thank you in advance for seriously considering serving.  We must not fail our neighbors in need or the Lord when He has called us to serve.

The rebuild trailer from Washington Osage Association and the mud out trailer from Union Association arrived Tuesday afternoon.  They will serve at least three weeks with rotation each week.  They will stay in Westwego with the feeding team and work each day about 20 minutes south in the town of Lafitte, which had much flooding and roof damage.

We could use the state mud out trailer in Louisiana if we have a blue cap step up to lead.

The tarping and mud out teams will be working with Pastor Eddie from First Baptist, Lafitte.

Thanks for prayerfully considering serving those who have lost so much.

Your brother,

Sam Porter
