ORH received this email from Pastor Denny Winborne of Lighthouse Baptist Church, Slidell, LA. He was a great blessing in the Katrina work. Although his church was damaged by Hurricane Katrina, he was completely committed to helping others. Pastor Winborne wrote the following:
“Pastor Glen Taylor, Temple Baptist Church, Denham springs, 6ft water in home, no flood ins. due to not being in Flood Zone. Pastor Rusty Silvertooth, Fundamental Baptist, Livingston, La, church is dry but estimates near half or more members with heavy losses or lost everything, like Bro. Bobby Buchanan, Baton Rouge. Pastor Jay Griggs, New Life Baptist, Ponchatoula, lost home but has flood ins. Second time this year to floods. I know FEMA will come through with much help for those not having ins., but these churches are also heavy involved in Flood Relief as we were in KATRINA 11 yr ago when I met you guys. I knew of the ones you've mentioned already and are doing what's possible to help. Finish a great day, Pastor Denny Winborne, Lighthouse Baptist Church”
ORH found a true and faithful friend in Pastor Winborne. If you know of other churches please let us know. ORH, although still involved with the work in West Virginia, will do whatever possible to be a help. Pray for these families and churches.
