Joyce Meyer Ministries is partnering with Service International of St. Louis, Missouri, Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Convoy of Hope in Springfield, Missouri, to help victims recover from the hurricane. Below is an update from the field.

The relief effort continues to gain steam as we receive supplies on a steady basis. Our needs remain the same with ice, water and food beginning to be the most pressing needs. Thank you so much for all your help with supplies and finances...even though most of you are not here physically, you are literally giving people eternal hope in spite of this tragedy. Yesterday we worked with Service International cutting down trees off houses and in yards. These guys are unbelievable because they can knock out some serious work very quickly and efficiently. What I admire most about them is their love for the Lord. They were clearing the trees off of one man's house when one of the guys with Service International struck up a conversation with the gentleman. The SI worker discovered that they both served in Vietnam and by the end of the conversation, he led the man to the Lord! That is just one of hundreds of stories that are taking place because of your prayers and support.

Again...thank you for all you do!
