In August, I traveled to the Baton Rouge Area and got to see first hand the devastation that had happened there. I felt compelled to donate $100,000 to some of the churches affected by the flood. As most of you know, Baton Rouge, Louisiana suffered a horrible flood which took close to 150,000 homes and also some great church buildings. In the past, I have been involved in helping with meals and donations after hurricanes had caused similar devastation.
I don’t know about you, when I’m down and out and need some guidance and uplifting, God has blessed me with some great Pastors and brothers and sisters I call my church family. I feel that I need to have a part in seeing these churches rebuild so they can get back to reaching people, helping people, and just continue doing what God has called them to do. Louisiana will always hold a special place in my heart since my team, the NBA Hornets, was in New Orleans for several years.
Please pray for these churches as they start over from scratch to rebuild their places of refuge and hope. Thank you and God Bless!
