To each according to his own ability…


So many trees…
It seems at every hurricane we work, McDonalds always take a beating…
Pray for this church, they have no insurance. Pray that God will provide…
This is another badly damaged church. Our crew will tarp this church tomorrow. Norm sketched the building but I think she left the boat in the parking lot off of her drawing…
Utility lines are everywhere…
This is the street to the church…
I had to ask someone. It’s a draw bridge.

Transition Day, Hammond to Houma Louisiana…


Thanks to Woodland Baptist Church and Pastor Tim and all his flock. They were very gracious and interested in our DR work. I only wish we could have heard his message. Right after praise and worship an announcement was made that the Red Cross needed help serving lunches around the area. So off we went, driving 15 miles west to help two great Red Cross workers in Independence Louisiana.
Change of command in Hammond as White Hat John from Arkansas DR took charge…
Norm not only served meals, she prayed with people, about 7 altogether…
Another Chaplain showed up, Steve from the Salvation Army and he prayed with people…
I just had our power steering pump fixed and it is leaking again. I’m pretty sure that is why the truck is poorly parked…
The closer we got to Houma, the more severe was the damage. After arriving and getting our rooms situated, we headed out and visited 3 homes before dark …
Don’t know???
Blessing upon blessings have been pouring on us from Heaven. Just like that, out of nowhere comes an attack by the evil one. He used another Christian for that purpose! We prayed our hearts out, we sought wise council and we are blessed by a loving God. Heavenly Father, thanks be to You, all praise be to You for giving us the ability to serve You in this ministry. What a privilege, what a gift, what an honor. Thanks for giving us this time to be Your hands and feet here in Houma Louisiana. In the Name of Your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ we pray, amen.

For this God is our God for ever and ever…Ps. 48:14


There is no end to the things that fascinate Norm…
There is a tiny home beyond the trees. There is no job that Norm can’t draw…
Don’t know…
Norm kept one eye on this chicken as she sketched with the other…
Dogs love us. This is Bo, he loved us so much that he took off with my hat as we were praying…
Brings a new meaning to dry dock…
SRO for Arkansas football…This is our last working day in Hammond, based out of Woodland Baptist Church, serving the Arkansas Incident Command team. We have truly been blessed by our fellow DR workers and by the homeowners we have met. Thanks to Woodland and Pastor Tim for giving us a place to stay. All praise to God!!!

It’s All About…


This tree reminds me of people. God created all of us with a space on the inside, a hole in our hearts that He, God only, can fill…We look normal and maybe even healthy and fit on the outside, not so much on the inside.
This is the size of a typical street in Hammond! I guess they only had so much asphalt, they had to stretch it out. Narrow roads, closed for power poles and lines that need restored, finding our homes has and is a real challenge…
Norm’s favorite store!!!
Tree on house…
Many dog visits today. Dogs love us…

On The Job…


The heart of the Hammond area is the Arkansas Incident Command Center. We know a lot of these men and women from prior call outs. Norm is getting our work for the day…
Norm drawing for the chainsaw team…
No ice today…
Bummer
We drove 1625 miles because we had a divine appointment set by God to minister to and be ministered by this fantastic family. We are so blessed!!!
Root balls. We see a lot of root balls…
Bad one
