The following picture was taken by Mrs Bundy, a woman who lived in the neighborhood and stayed during the storm. The picture is taken from her attic, where she spent several days until the flood waters receded.

Through Samaritan’s Purse we were introduced to the Royal family. Due to installation of faulty drywall, supplies stolen from their empty home, and other issues, this family has encountered one set back after another in attempts to rebuild their home.

Slide 78: 

Four years later the Royal’s are still unable to move back into their home and are living in an apartment.

Slide 80: 

Most gulf coast residents we have spoken with claim that it has been church groups who have done a majority of the rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina.

Slide 81: 

With this in mind we are hoping to unite with other churches in our area to collect enough donations to complete the Royal’s home

Slide 82: 

The opportunity to rebuild a home is more importantly an open door for us to be the hands and feet of Christ, and to share His love.
