Pearl River and the New Orleans Area in October, 2005
From Wednesday, October 5 through Saturday October 8, students and faculty were allowed onto the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary campus to examine their houses or dorm rooms to see what might be salvagable after the flooding of Hurricane Katrina. Jeff had to be on the campus for counseling of those who came.
On October 7, these NOBTS security personnel along with the National Gaurd were providing security for the campus as students, faculty and cleanup volunteers were allowed on campus.
Such was the fate of a seminary professors home library. Most modern furniture disintegrates when submerged in six feet of water, and the books just got distributed in a layer on t he floor.
Traveling with one of the mission groups on October 9, Jeff was on the way home via the Highway 11 bridge route when they encountered these two large shrimp boats on the higway some distance from the canal on which they were berthed when the storm hit.
October 26. The staff of the Northshore Church out on a tree-cutting mission. Jeff, Pastor Larry McEwen, and Music Minister Andrew with some of the trees trees they had been cutting. The process with the huge oak trees was greatly enhanced when they obtained the 30" Shindawa chainsaw that Jeff is holding.
Another location for the Northshore tree-cutting crew shows Larry, Associate Pastor Jay Victory on the Bobcat and Jeff. Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola provided the Bobcat for them, which helped greatly in tree clearing.
