They have called it the thousand year flood. Some estimates put the homes damaged at over 60k with over 100k households applying for FEMA assistance. It is said that nearly 11 percent of the states population was affected in one way or another.
We had the pleasure of working with Our Savior’s Church in Lafayette, LA at their Broussard, LA campus. We had an incredible time helping those in need. We spent 4-1/2 weeks working in areas of Louisiana that have never flooded before. We were able to help mud out homes, distribute goods to families in need, and help during the beginning phases of the rebuild process.
