The devastation of Huricane Katrina and the work to restore the region after the hurricane will take decades. Willing Hearts answered the call the first week of the storm by setting up camp in Waveland Mississippi. We set up food service for Hanover County- feeding 3000 meals, t3)time per day.
As we "put out the call to volunteers around the nation, we engaged in cleanup, FEMA suport, and ultimately in "mucking out homes"... We engaged in serving the community with the love of God...and rebuilding over (80) homes from scratch in the next (18) months. Many right from the foundation!
And God provided the laborers and the resources... and the people of Waveland saw the love of God through His people.
