(News, December 18, 2021)
In the fall of 2020 Hurricanes Laura and Delta devastated Lake Charles, Louisiana. In addition, many in Lake Charles suffered damage from the freeze in February 2021, and then even more flooding from a rainstorm in the May. ReachGlobal Crisis Response is working in Lake Charles and the needs are great. The staff there includes our friends Kat Welch, Kerry and Sheila Jeske, and Eloise Wierzbicki.
You’re invited to come with a Trinity team to help. We have reserved the week that begins on Sunday, February 27, 2022 and ends on Friday, March 4, 2022. We will leave after church on Sunday and return mid-afternoon on Friday.
You don’t need any specific skills or tools to be on the team – just a willingness to be the hands and feet and heart and voice of Jesus toward people with real physical and spiritual needs.
Because we’re taking a team to a site other than our own, there is a cost – the same cost every team that came to help us paid. The cost for each person for the week is $340. However, we expect to be able to provide matching funds up to 50% of the cost ($170) for everyone who comes.
If you are interested, please contact Bob or Gail DeGray as soon as possible. We need to turn in a roster of how many people are coming within the next few weeks. We will be happy to answer any questions you have.
