Many people have been asking how they can help the people impacted by the severe tornadoes last Friday night. I have been in contact with Methodist Church officials in the affected areas.
At this time the request is for donations to be made to United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) at https://umcmission.org/advance-project/901670/
I will continue to monitor the situation and pass along any changes.
Thanks,

Day 6 of FUMC Morris ERT Mission to Louisiana. Today marks one week since hurricane IDA came a shore in the bayou with winds as high as 190 mph.
Today was a quieter day, a day to reflect and a day to prayer for what people need along with prayers for what people have and how people survived the storm.
This morning we attended outdoor worship service at our host UMC in Houma. Many storm related stories were told and plans made to support each other and the community.
We headed east to survey damage and to check on the need for food in the rural communities. Damage was heavy and we soon found a fire station that was being used as a small distribution station for ice and water. They were also using the area for a command center. We quickly met the Parish President and offered to provide hot meals tomorrow for local residents. He quickly agreed and said he would provide us with some volunteer helpers.
After some coordination with the very generous folks at Operation BBQ Relief, tomorrow we will be able to serve 750 hot BBQ meals to those in need. Also on Tuesday Operation BBQ Relief will provide close to 1,000 meals for the UMC in Thibadaux to serve in their community.
We can see and feel that your prayers are being answered in Louisiana. There is so much more to do but we are seeing small steps forward. Please keep those impacted by IDA, not only in Louisiana but those in the southeast and northeast United States. Thanks...
