Katrina: The SBC effort in New Orleans

My friend Aaron Arledge from NOBTS now has a new job. His old job was Baptist Collegiate Ministry Director at the University of New Orleans and Assistant Metro Director for the Greater New Orleans BCM. But all that ended on August 29th when Katrina made landfall as a Cat 4 Hurricane. His new job is to coordinate collegiate disaster relief efforts to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. It's a much bigger job than he thinks he can handle. But, I think he is just the guy for the task. He has asked me to help a bit by getting the word out that he is looking for a few good collegiate men and women (well actually quite a number more than that) to come to the Gulf Coast areas that were ravaged by Hurricane Katrina and give aid to those who have and are continually suffering in the aftermath. I am hoping to get him to post his vision for the relief efforts very soon. Stay tuned for more details. For now, here is his contact info:

Cell Phone: 504-235-6462
Email: aaronarledge at hotmail

Aaron has said that he can provide housing in the New Orleans area for any groups or individuals who would like to come. But he needs workers. If you are a college student or young adult who is interested please contact him ASAP. If you can't come immediately or in the next couple of months, but you can come in December or next summer, contact him anyway. He is planning on continuing this project for at least a year. Thanks to all those who can help.

About me

Paul was not interested merely in the ethical principles of religion or of ethics. On the contrary, he was interested in the redeeming work of Christ and its effect upon us. His primary interest was in Christian doctrine, and Christian doctrine not merely in its presuppositions but at its centre. -- J. Greshem Machen.
