The oil spill not only endangers marine live, water foul, and coastal animals. The greatest tragedy is the people who are affected. Our wonderful community of Bayou La Batre and our neighbors are primarily a fishing village. Fishing is gone and so are all the fishing supported jobs. Many, many of our people and our friends are jobless and need food. Thankfully, the Bay Area Food Bank has helped us be able to feed some, but not all we want to feed.
The National Guard and friends like Mike Buamgartner are doing all they can to help. Mike, who runs Disaster Assistance, is preparing and giving away about 300 meals per day. Below are some pictures of the recent food giveaways. The need is great, if you can help please contact us.
Waiting for food here at the church building.
The Guard, ready to serve
The need is widespread, people are hungry
Getting ready for the people
Our church is in desperate need of a good van or small bus.
Contact us at once if you know about one we can get as a gift.
For details see this story.
During the week the campers did black and white paintings of the “I am’s” of Jesus. “I am the gate of the sheepfold”, “I am the vine”, etc. At the end of the week an artist painted this large canvas and it was hidden from the campers…until they began one by one taking down the “I am” paintings and finally this beautiful painting was revealed.
Near the end of the night brother Billy Spaulding was called to the platform and the camp director presented the painting to the Hemley Road group! What a nice way to honor those you love and respect and what a nice way for us to remember the camp and how much we love those who run the camp and made it possible for us to go!
Isn’t God Amazing?
