The Story

They went to sleep on Sunday night hoping and praying that they had made it safely through the flooding disaster in the Baton Rouge area. The water crept into the house in the middle of the night, and they woke up to 3" of water in the house, and rising.  Mickey and Shelli have put so much of their own blood, sweat and tears into their home, with this picture of Camille's newly decorated room taken only two weeks before the flooding.  Thankfully, they are okay.  Camille's mom's house flooded, too, so she is doubly out of sync with her life.  They have gutted the house with the help of many of Shelli's family (thank God for them), and the hard part is just beginning.  Yes, they have insurance, but it will not cover everything.  Many have asked how they can help, and this is one way to do it.  Thank you for your caring and your generosity!❤️

The emergency is 10 days past.  Less than 48 hours of standing water a little less than 2 feet deep, and our lives have changed for a LONG time!  The house has been gutted, this weekend we are attacking the garage.  So much still to do, so much waiting, so much help that we are so grateful for.  Mickey's job is based on commission, so the week of the flooding was no paycheck.  His clients are restaurants, and no one is going out to dinner OR the restaurants are dealing with flood damage and are closed.  Shelli went back to work and finally got a chance to collapse into a puddle of tears. Camille does not return to high school until September 12, and she will have to go to a different school while her school undergoes restoration.  This major flooding has affected so much of life going forward, and we thank you for your continued prayers and your generous donations to help us through this!
