Louisiana Flooding Update

12113360_10153014991996809_6709201722376086084_oDear ARP Members,

I contacted Dean Rydbeck, pastor at our Hope Church, and Blake Law, pastor at our Calhoun Church, both located in Louisiana.  I asked about the flood conditions in their areas.  Both indicated that things were fine in their areas.  Dean said there was some flooding in the south side of their parish but none of their members were affected.  We are grateful for these reports and encourage your prayers for the other areas of Louisiana that are flooding.

In Christ,


Guy H. Smith, D.D.

Catawba Stated Clerk/Administrator
