The Westbank United SDA Church in New Orleans, Louisiana, has been actively serving their community members who are experiencing food insecurity due to Hurricane Laura accompanied by the COVID-19 pandemic. They received 1, 586 boxes of food from Farmers to Families of Fort Worth, Texas, last week to distribute to the community. In addition, they were blessed with a sixteen foot truck full of items that were sponsored by the Fondren Seventh day Adventist Church of Houston this past Sunday. Several of their volunteers also worked at the Distribution Site in Lake Charles on September 8th. Their area churches supported a full U-Haul truck with items and gift cards for the survivors of the hurricane.
“Thank you for your prayers and support. It has been a pleasure to continue to serve all of God’s people in Jesus name. God has been good amidst all of our challenges. We will continue to be grateful, prayerful and vigilant in representing the Southwest Region Conference Of Seventh day Adventist Church with God taking the lead,” said Irene Williams, M.S.W., Coordinator, ACS of Southwest Region Conference.
