    Redemption from Pain: 10 Years after Hurricane Katrina

    Ten years after Katrina, life has not yet returned to normal. Yet part of the new “normal” is a heightened sense of God at work, in a multitude of ways, through His Church—bringing redemption from the pain.

  8. It has been said that Hurricane Katrina revealed New Orleans' “dirty little secrets”: systemic injustice, racial inequities and generational poverty.

  9. "The (EFCA ReachGlobal) Crisis Response team has also learned that the deepest needs emerge over time, after the initial responders return home and yet nothing is 'normal.' So even though millions of dollars are funneled into immediate relief, the vast majority of EFCA crisis-response funds are invested in long-term recovery and development." #EFCAKatrina

    Redemption from Pain

    In New Orleans, many people are not fond of calling August 29th the “anniversary” of Hurricane Katrina, as though it were something to be celebrated. Yet New Orleans’ pain has not been without some redemption.

    Go Already!

    After a group from Faith Bible Church (EFCA) returned from a short-term trip serving in NOLA, their advice to someone still contemplating serving was, "Go already!".

    Changed Forever: How Interning with Crisis Response taught me about God's love. #EFCAkatrina https://t.co/nzmdBWilye http://t.co/sFCEe1XFPn

  16. KATRINA10: did you know there is an intersection of Hope and New Orleans!? Last year, the interns and I started a prayer walk at this intersection. Romans 5 says: "...suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame..."(Verses 3-5) We pray that out of the sufferings from Hurricane Katrina, the city of New Orleans will embrace the living hope found in Jesus! Share a story from one of your prayer walks and keep praying for New Orleans! #EFCAKatrina #prayerwalk

  17. // #efcakatrina // it's hard to believe that 10 years ago a hurricane came through and demolished New Orleans. The amount of people who had come to help rebuild this city has been astronomical. However, when the coverage stopped the teams of people slowly stopped coming. Now today houses like this one still stand abandoned & affected by the hurricane. I will be forever thankful for those who continue to come and rebuild the city that has captured my heart. I cannot wait to serve along side #RGCR again. #neverforgetKatrina #nola #10yearslater

  22. If you ever visited post-Katrina New Orleans, you'll never forget the "X" painted on every home, denoting the Search & Rescue team checked for bodies. And then you might see a number on the right side of the X as the grim reminder of one of the 1,833 Katrina fatalities. Remember. Realize. Respond. #efcakatrina

    Remember. Realize. Respond.

    Just days after Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast and inundated 80% of New Orleans in the largest natural disaster in our country’s history, the city was sealed off but God opened a miraculous door to allow us access into the city.
