Today, our Mercy Chefs team is returning to United Life Church in Lake Charles -- the church that served as our base of operations during Hurricane Laura relief efforts. To be quite honest, I'm not sure what to expect. We have never returned to the same location that was hit TWICE by a major hurricane in such a short time.
I'm sure the people of Lake Charles are devastated and discouraged. This is an absolutely critical deployment, and I need help THIS WEEKEND so we can start meeting the need.
I hope to serve our first meals for DINNER TONIGHT or, at the latest, TOMORROW LUNCH. Will you help Mercy Chefs reach out to the people of Lake Charles who have just been hit by a second major hurricane in a matter of weeks? Go here to make your tax-deductible gift directly to Mercy Chefs:
I'm at a loss for words. I can't believe we're going back to Lake Charles. 2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, but I can't imagine having your community get hit by TWO MAJOR HURRICANES in the span of a few weeks.
Please pray for the people of Southwest Louisiana. And as the Lord leads, please help Mercy Chefs meet this need.
Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
P.S. Again, I expect to be serving our first meals THIS EVENING or TOMORROW LUNCH. These next 48 hours are critical. I'll be sharing more details as soon as we are on the ground. Thanks in advance for your help, and go here to make a gift to support Hurricane Delta victims:
