"Dream" Relief Provided in Louisiana - More than 1,400 Mormons from six surrounding states converged on southern Louisiana September 27 to help Houma residents dig out from the aftermath of two September hurricanes. Hailing from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee, they joined volunteers from the Realizing the Dream Foundation, the AFL-CIO, and local churches and groups.
[News from around the Church]
My brother, from the MS Jackson Stake, was at this event. He says it was an amazing event. Families who hadn't been in a church in years were so touched that they were remembered and that the church came to check on and help them. Some said they'd be back at church. This type of service is a blessing in the lives of those served, and the serve-ers.
