I just spoke with a friend of mine, Jay Hall, over at Maxx Technologies in Franklin, TN and he made me aware of a situation in Louisiana that could use your help.  Jason Morant’s sister attends Joy Fellowship in Slidell Louisiana.  The church is one of the only, if not the only, church remaining in the city after hurricane Katrina.  They would like to house, feed, clothe and care for 200 people in their small building but currently lack supplies.  So Jay, owner of a production company, has wrangled a deal from a transportation company in Nashville, for a semi.  The truck will leave tomorrow for Slidell with supplies for Joy Fellowship.

Gas prices are high and gas stations are in short supply past Meridian, Mississippi so a gas truck from Texas will more than likely have to meet the relief truck in Slidell and fill it up for the return trip.  This is costly.  The supplies on the truck won’t be cheap either.  Food, equipment to cook food, blankets etc will have to be purchased.

If you’d like to make a donation of supplies or money to the church directly you can do so knowing that it will go to aiding the people of Louisiana.  Note n the check that it is for relief efforts.  Here is the church’s address:

Joy Fellowship

1510 W. Lindberg

Slidell, LA 70458

If you would like to help with Maxx Tech’s costs you can donate to them directly by mail as well.  Note on the check that it is for the Slidell Relief Truck and make checks to Maxx Tech.  Send to:

Maxx Tech

Attn: Slidell Relief Truck

PO Box 707

Franklin, TN 37065

This is the Church being the Church.  Pray.  Help if you can.  Updates to come.
