Ready to Help Hurricane Ida Victims

Field Report by Operation Blessing

MISSISSIPPI – Hurricane Ida struck the United States as a category four storm. Much of the gulf coast, stretching from Texas to Florida, has felt its impact. Millions have lost power and lives have been lost. Currently Ida, now a tropical storm, continues to make its way up through the United States. It brings life-threatening winds, rains, and flooding. However, Operation Blessing friends like you are reaching out to help Ida victims.

Residents of Louisiana and Mississippi felt Ida’s greatest impact. In response, the Operation Blessing Disaster Relief team has travelled to the gulf coast to survey the damage. Moving through Tupelo and Starkville, Mississippi, as well as Covington and Hammond, Louisiana, our team has witnessed dozens of downed power lines, trees obstructing traffic, and severe flooding.

On the Move to Help Ida Victims

We are meeting with local leaders, including at the staging sight in Laurel, Mississippi, to understand the most fervent need and to help Ida victims during this time. Please continue to pray for the victims, as well as the volunteers who are standing by, ready to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus.

  • Hi my name is Robert and my wife and I have helped partner with Operation Blessing,CBN, and Orphans Promise  because we know for sure that you guys are indeed on the ground helping people in need and for that we believe in your ministry. Can you guys please help us we are from Houma,LA too and our home suffered roof damage and mold is growing all on the walls we do believe its fixable but we really don’t know because we have never rebuilt before and we really love our home but we don’t know when or if we’ll be able to live in it again. Right now we’re still evacuated at a hotel in El Dorado,Arkansas until October but after that date we’re not sure what’s going to happen. We can’t believe this has happened to us after losing our home to Katrina in 2005 an now this on the very same exact date of the anniversary of Katrina is really devastating if you can help in anyway even if it’s to help adequately tarp the roof I promise you it would be beyond anything I could ask think or imagine I know you guys do whatever you can for people and for that I am grateful Thank you for the work you do All over the world and thank you for helping people here in my community as well. I moved here in 2007 a little after Katrina and from what I hear, folks here have never experienced this level of destruction and neither have I. I just pray for a SPEEDY recovery for all of us and much Thanks to  Operation Blessing and all the other boots on the ground helping to assist in this recovery process.

      Hi Robert, So sorry to hear that! I will pass this along to our US Disaster team. You can also call 1-800-730-2537 or Life Church in Houma to request help. Many blessings to you and your family during this difficult time.

  • I wanted to come help but was told they couldn’t give me a place to lay my head at night! I don’t know where to stay or where to go.

  • Good afternoon Operation Blessing!
    My name is Tammy. I was wondering if you need any volunteers for anything while you’re in Louisiana? I live in Gray, Louisiana. I have my own transportation and live nearby. I enjoy helping if you will have me.
