In the picture above, James, who has been so instrumental in our rebuilding mercy ministry, just presented the Greens with their “Certificate of Occupancy” from the City of Bay St. Louis.
Shortly after WWII, Mr. Green built his home with his own hands, where they raised 6 children. Katrina destroyed the house while Mr. Green road out the storm in 16+ feet of raging flood water – a harrowing task for anyone, but especially a man in his 80s. Living in FEMA provided housing, with no idea on where to turn, the Greens came to Lakeshore Baptist Church for help.
Volunteers began framing a new house back in August. Countless mission teams worked back to back to complete the project. Mr. and Mrs Green are so grateful and praise God for their new home.
