Members of Moulton Baptist Church in Muscle Shoals Baptist Association went on a missions trip to New Orleans Oct. 25–30 to work with Operation NOAH (New Orleans Area Homes) Rebuild for the second time this year.
Operation NOAH, a cooperative ministry of the New Orleans churches and associations, the Louisiana Baptist Convention and the North American Mission Board, assists people whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.
The team of 10, led by Associate Pastor Mark Wakefield, worked on the home of a woman who has been living in Atlanta since Katrina hit. Team members repaired portions of the roof and porch, installed laminate floors and painted some of the outside of the house.
Wakefield said one exciting part of the trip was sharing the gospel with a neighbor of the woman.
“It has created in [our people who went] a hunger to do more for the people in New Orleans,” Wakefield said of the trip.
A team from Muscle Shoals Association traveled to Haughton, La., this summer to work with Beulah Land Baptist Church.
Led by Director of Missions Robert Smith, the team of 33 people, representing eight churches, hung Sheetrock in a new building for Beulah Land Baptist and held a Vacation Bible School during the week.
“It was a great experience. We really enjoyed it,” Smith said.
