For many people, New Orleans, La., is a place for fun and festivities. For others, the city is a site of homelessness and suffering. The latter group is among those being helped by the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, with support from the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.
Baptist Friendship House is three blocks from New Orleans’ Bourbon Street, offering hope to those who face despair in their lives. One such person is Sue Yocum (featured in the video clip below), who found herself abandoned with a new baby — homeless in New Orleans. Kay Bennett came to her aid. Kay is director of the ministry. BFH provides food and shelter for homeless women and children, and in the process helps them to find a relationship with Jesus.
You can help to support Kay and other North American missionaries by giving to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and by praying for them. Specifically, you can pray for:
- encouragement for Kay and the staff at Baptist Friendship House as they encounter hurting people every day and
- God’s freedom and healing for people enslaved by human trafficking.
