Samaritan's Purse in Mobile
Here's an update from Samaritan's Purse on its efforts to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina: . . .
Samaritan's Purse Disaster Relief teams have begun operations in the vicinity of Mobile, Alabama, an area battered by high winds, torrential rains, and an estimated 12-foot storm surge that shoved the Mobile River over its banks. Our teams will work westward into devastated areas of Mississippi and Louisiana as conditions permit.
The physical needs are overwhelming throughout the Gulf Coast region in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, one of the most destructive storms in U.S. history. Hundreds of people are feared dead across Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, with hundreds of thousands of houses damaged or destroyed, roads and bridges washed away, and many communities left without electricity or drinkable water. . . .
Please pray for the hundreds of thousands of hurricane victims along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Remember the people still trapped by flooding, for those who are desperate to learn if their loved ones or homes are safe, and for officials dealing with unprecedented problems. Ask God to guide Samaritan's Purse into the communities where He wants us involved.
