Prayer Needed for Katrina's Victims, Relief Workers

“Now is the time for all Americans to pray for our fellow citizens experiencing danger, grief and need,” says Albert Mohler, author, speaker and president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. “We can help by working with disaster relief agencies and churches and by offering financial support. Disasters like Hurricane Katrina often bring out both the best and the worst in human nature.”





With the massive amount of clean up that will undertaken in the coming weeks, World Relief volunteers will need chainsaws, containers to haul away debris, tools, and other necessary items that will require an influx of cash. Donors wishing to contribute to the Hurricane Relief fund may do so at or by calling 1-800-535-5433.
