The KCM Relief Team is on the ground in Lake Charles, La., helping Partners and those in need after Hurricane Laura.
Over the last few weeks, the Kenneth Copeland Ministries (KCM) Relief Team has been in Lake Charles, La., ministering to Partners and friends affected by Hurricane Laura, which made landfall Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020, just south of Lake Charles near Cameron, as a Category 4 storm.
CHECKING ON PARTNERS
First, our team checked on our Partners in the Lake Charles area. Here are some of their stories.
The Broussards Had Minimal Damage
On Monday, Aug. 31, the KCM Relief Team located 37-year KCM Partners Dave and Dorothy Broussard. The Broussards shared how Hurricane Laura went right over their community, wreaking complete destruction and devastation within 40 miles in every direction. However, their house suffered minimal damage compared to other houses. Praise The LORD!
Watch the Broussards share their story below.
Gloria Spoke to the Storm
On Tuesday, Sept. 1, our Relief Team found Gloria, who has been a Partner for 24 years. In the video below, Gloria shares how she learned from KCM to stand on The WORD of God and to send out angels to have charge over her, which is exactly what she did! She spoke to the storm, commanded minimal damage, and her prayers were answered. Glory to God!
During the evacuation, she was displaced back and forth between Lake Charles and Dallas. KCM and the Relief Team blessed her financially to help cover the cost of being displaced during that time. Thank you to our Partners for making this possible!
Wilbert’s Story: ‘God Provided for Me’
On Wednesday, Sept. 2, our team located Partner Wilbert Fontenot, whose home was struck by Hurricane Laura. Wilbert shared with us how his wife of 30 years, Charmaine, passed away on Aug. 2, 2020, from COVID-19, and then Hurricane Laura did significant damage to his home.
His house is full of water, and he’s been forced to sleep in the only livable room in the house. However, he’s not getting much sleep, about two to three hours per night, because he’s been helping his neighbors clean out their homes, too.
“I’m going to make it,” says a teary-eyed, yet determined, Wilbert. “Because God provided for me.”
Our team was blessed to be able to provide financial support to Wilbert to help him with costs, and we were also able to pray for him during this difficult time. Will you pray for him, too?
This is what it’s all about–Partners helping Partners!
HELPING CLEAN UP & REPAIR
After initially checking on Partners, the KCM Relief Team took a team of 12 back to Lake Charles the week of Sept. 13 to help those in need with cleanup efforts and repair work to homes and buildings. Our team was blessed to partner with Operation Blessing in this effort. The crew worked on tree removal, debris clean-up and mold removal, as well as completed work on 12 family homes and one ministry building.
