Katrina 5 Years Later - Hope, Healing & Heroes

It's been 5 years since Hurricane Katrina devastated areas of Louisiana and Mississippi.  While the recovery process is still ongoing in the Gulf Coast, we know God has been doing some amazing things in the lives of the people who are there and in the lives of those who have and continue to help rebuild the region. 

We want to remember those who lost their lives from Katrina and honor the heroes who jumped in to help and restore the area.  Maybe you or loved ones were there ... or maybe you responded by helping ... if so, what has God done in your life in the 5 years since Katrina?

Vacation Pics :-)

 

A New Jersey family visiting the Wisconsin State Capitol had an unexpected person show up in their vacation photo - a man in the background stealing their bag! They were able to show the photo to security, who moments later apprehended the thief.  Got a vacation photo that can top that?!  Share it by clicking HERE.
