When Jesus said the gates of hell will not prevail against His church you, Broadmoor, are what He was talking about.
Yes, things are hard right now. But in the darkness of this pandemic, the light of Christ is shining brightly through your prayers, your gifts, and your loving service.
Through our partnership with the Louisiana Rural Health Network, dozens of clinics and hospitals in the rural parts of our state are able to remain open and continue the ministry of healing thanks to the hundreds of homemade masks you have donated.
And two nights ago, your gifts made it possible for us to continue Christ’s ministry of feeding the hungry at Red Stick Together.
In less than two hours over 200 meals were distributed. The gratitude of the people was evident by the smiles on their faces and the tears in their eyes. One difference we noticed this week was we fed more families as opposed to just individuals.
Will Starkey, our facilities manager at Broadmoor, was one of the volunteers Wednesday night. He shared a story with me about a lady, with tears in her eyes, profusely thanking him and the church. She was one of the over six million Americans who have lost their jobs since the pandemic began. The meals we gave her were going to be the biggest meals she and her children had in over a week.
