Louisiana Baptist Disaster Relief feeding and laundry teams were activated for ministry to the homeless in Lake Charles.
The team of 12 members from Carey Baptist Association and Rolling Hills Ministries cooked meals (using equipment provided by Philadelphia Baptist Church, Deville), Jan. 15–17, for an expected 125 homeless individuals housed at Watersedge Church (non-denominational), Lake Charles.
Reggy Saxon, DR coordinator for Zone 5 that encompasses southwest Louisiana, asked for prayers for those individuals the teams will minister to over the next few days.

“God reminds us that He cares even for the least of these,” Saxon said. “These are folks without a home. Shame on us if we ignore them, especially in a time of need. This is an excellent time to share the Lord in tough conditions.”
Lake Charles is among communities throughout the state and nation impacted by frigid temperatures and wintry precipitation from Winter Storm Heather.
Across the state, roadways, businesses including all state offices and schools were closed as Heather blanketed parts of the state with snow, freezing rain and sleet.
