Katrina Relief

In 2006, Verna led a team of 21 from Fellowship Bible Church and First Baptist Church of Kennesaw to travel to Gonzales, LA (Verna’s hometown) for a Katrina Relief Fundraiser Concert. RoPM partnered with Samaritan’s Purse to bring the community together in an evening of music, worship and testimony. As is typical of this South Louisiana community, over 100 people volunteered to help in making this event a success. We want to give a special thank you to Pastor Scott Bledsoe and the Household of Faith church in Gonzales, LA for hosting the event. Pastor Scott rallied his congregation to invest spiritually, financially, and physically to ensure the community would benefit from this event. We thank God that through the efforts of the Gonzales area communities and our team, we raised $13,000 toward the Katrina Relief projects. Along with financial provision, spiritual seeds were planted as many people heard the Gospel message for the first time.
