Together for Hope Louisiana: New Website, New Traction in the Work

You can feel most encouraged in the traction starting to build in the Lake Providence work. Jenny Hodge, Missionary/Coordinator, has masterfully pulled together a local planning group of a cross section of the community who are building on a sound, asset-based approach to make positive change together. Her vision is to be a facilitator in the process of local leaders determining community priorities and finding ways to work together to make lasting change.

As those plans advance, she will find appropriate ways for outside groups and churches to come along side and support local efforts. Read about the early steps of this process at her new smartly designed website tfh-la.org. (Funding for the new website was provided by Broadmoor Baptist in Baton Rouge. Thanks!)

Another key development is the launching of the Together for Hope Advisory Council, composed of members from CBF-LA churches around the state. Jenny has assembled a diverse and talented group who are already at work generating ways to enhance and further develop the work. You will be hearing more about that later. All of this is almost too much to say grace over, but we do, and praise God for these advancements.

Many were touched by the CNN story, including this young person from Florida who sent a small donation with a note signed “A Broke College Student.” Read Jenny Hodge’s reflections on this gift at her blog found at tfh-la.org.
