As wildfires continued to rage in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana Baptist Disaster Relief teams and churches recently remained in the area to show Christ’s love to first responders and other impacted by the damage.
According to Gary Hahler, pastor of Shady Grove Baptist Church, Pitkin, and Disaster Relief coordinator for Beauregard Baptist Association, a Louisiana Baptist Disaster Relief feeding team had cooked at least 450 meals for first responders battling the fires.

The Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office reported that in one night the fire had crossed over Highway 27 but first responders have managed to keep structures from being damaged.
