"...In a Sunday school room down the hall from the sanctuary at University Presbyterian Church in Baton Rogue, LA, a woman in her ninth month of pregnancy is resting on an air mattress.
She showed up last night wearing bedroom slippers and a shift, carrying a small shopping bag filled with everything she has left from her flooded New Orleans home. When the city was evacuated, she got separated from the rest of her family and she isn’t sure how to find them.
Her baby is due any day...."
I wrote earlier today how nice it would be to start hearing about how people are performing acts of service and compassion. Here in Mid Missouri some hurricane refugees are already arriving, and the Red is coordinating local churches, social organizations, and the Boy Scouts of America in providing shelter and assistance to these people in need.
