Hurricane Laura Response

Sep 15, 2020
Bethel Global Response

Hurricane Laura hit the Louisiana coast as a Category 4 storm August 27, 2020. By the next day, our deployed team of 11 arrived in Lake Charles, LA ready and equipped to serve. Water and electricity had been cut off in the region and over 14 billion dollars of damage had been done. For the next 10 days, 27 families received recovery assistance from our trained forestry crews with their heavy equipment, as well as emergency roof repair from our tarping crew. Our forestry program was developed in part thanks to Hand of Hope, a ministry of Joyce Meyer. While on the ground we served alongside the local church responding in their community in their time of need.
