Operation Compassion Responds to Severe Flooding in Louisiana and MississippiIn response to this devastation, Operation Compassion is partnering with God’s Pit Crew in delivering 3 semi-trailers loaded with disaster relief supplies to Covington and Shreveport, LA. Pastor Michael Newcomb of NorthShore Worship Center in Covington has opened his church to serve as a disaster relief center for those in the area. The 1st semi-trailer was delivered Sunday and distributed in 3 hours. The 2nd semi-trailer is on the way to his location. While the 3rd semi-trailer is on its way to the Intentional Church and Pastor Rob Miskowski in Shreveport.

Operation Compassion is sending a fourth semi-trailer to Greenville, MS where Pastor Scott Volland and the Impact Church will be helping families throughout their area receive disaster relief supplies. In addition, six more semi-trailers are currently being staged. These semi-trailers are filled with necessary disaster relief supplies such as bottled water, food, cleaning supplies, blankets, disaster boxes and buckets and much more.

There are many people in great need today because of this destructive weather pattern. This could be just the beginning of a massive response to the survivors.
