A big thanks goes  to all of the prayerers, givers, and goers who helped with the Hurricane Ida response in Mandeville, La., on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain.

KNCSB is working with Missouri Baptist Relief and other state conventions. The operation in Mandeville is expected to shut down around Oct. 10.

Statistics from the Mandeville operation include:

  • One salvation
  • 1,156 volunteer days
  • 10,761 volunteer hours
  • 523 chaplaincy contacts
  • 143 Bibles distributed
  • 20,239 meals prepared
  • 10,535 meals served
  • 1,341 showers
  • 817 laundry loads
  • 242 cleanup jobs completed

“If you are scheduled to participate in Mandeville between now and Oct. 10, please plan to go. We are counting on you to help us finish what we’ve started,” said Chuck Neece, director of operations for KNCSB Disaster Relief.

There are still many needs in south Louisiana after Hurricane Ida. Details on how you can help will be announced later.

Your prayers and financial gifts are needed to support KNCSB Disaster Relief. Please make out contributions to KNCSB and designate them for “Disaster Relief.” Send them to KNCSB Disaster Relief, 5410 SW 7th St., Topeka, KS 66606-2398.
