Istrouma Baptist Disaster Relief on the Gulf Coast

For the last 3 Thursdays, a volunteer chainsaw crew from Istrouma Baptist Church has made their way from Baton Rouge to Lakeshore to lend a hand in our clean-up efforts. The Disaster Relief Ministry , led by William Davis began this year amid a very active Gulf Coast hurricane season. The team not only removed…

Hurricane Zeta Disaster Relief Food Give-Away

Lakeshore Baptist Church continues to minister tangible help and hope in the name of Christ, despite damage to their own church building. Securing pallets of Disaster Relief food boxes from Feeding the Gulf Coast, we distributed hundreds of pounds of nonperishable groceries following Hurricane Zeta.

Hurricane Zeta Damages Mississippi Gulf Coast Church Buildings

Hurricane Zeta hit Lakeshore Baptist Church hard and left extensive damage to our buildings. The toppled steeple caved in a portion of the roof, cracked several trusses, and did major damage as it fell. The high winds downed trees all over the church campus, stripped shingles off the church building, office, and bunk house, knocked…

The Pastor’s Porch

This Kentucky crew, led by my good friend Tommy Floyd, has made numerous trips over the years to the gulf coast. I lost count of how many homes they framed up following Hurricane Katrina. Their ability to work together and accomplish so much, in less than a week has become legendary in our Rebuild Lakeshore…

Puerto Rico 2019 – Hermanos en una misión
