Update 2 Baton Rouge

10/08/16

Today I visited Denham Springs with James ,Solomon , Brent, and Stephen. As we drove there it was this beautiful green wooded area. After a while as you looked at the street you would see piles of debris piled out front of their homes . It is quite sad to think everything that you worked so hard for, your family home was destroyed in 1 day. We spent the day working at the Denham Police department working on getting all the plumbing fixtures reinstalled and helping demo the kitchen in the Jail area.There are some actual inmates working with us. I am looking forward to spending more time with them so we can begin speaking to them about the Lord. I came from a similar background and actually came to know the Lord in the same situation as them. It was an honor to serve God and serve these people that had so much turmoil come in to their lives. Jesus said , Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven My prayer is that they would see Gods hand in their lives as we serve here, and know that He loves them . I could not think of anything better to come out of a bad situation than eternal salvation.

In Christ,

Jon Brechtel
