Surviving Hurricane Gustav

WOW, ok this was a crazy experience. The hurricane hit us really hard in Northeast Louisiana. The wind was insane and we've already gotten 15 inches of rain. Two sweet awesome huge oak trees smashed my house. Check out the video.

Here is a short clip of our evacuee center that we opened up on Sunday night. We had tons of volunteers help out and make it happen. I was absolutely blown away by our student staff and our church. They came out of the woodwork to help these displaced people. I was speaking with a lady who was a resident of New Orleans and she began to weep and said, "I just can't believe how loving you guys are," she went on to say, "it's amazing how we can come up here and not even know you and you just take us in, that truly is the love of Christ and we can never thank you enough."

It was an incredible experience to serve others.
