The Task At Hand
The current focus on the needs in the greater Dulac areas is in direct response to the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005 and Gustav and Ike in 2008. These terrible storms of 2008 and 2005 did not cause the real tragedy here, though. They merely exposed it. While we attempt to rebuild homes that lost roofs, or were flooded out, or were completely destroyed, we are also attempting to address the systemic difficulties inherent in a community of poverty. We are, therefore, rebuilding lives.
There is much to do here from construction work on individual homes, to construction work on church property, to counseling and personal handholding, to education and staffing, to the sharing of talents, skills and experiences. Please inform us of any skills, and skill levels, you may have within your team.
The “task at hand” is to transform, and be transformed.
