Late nights and long days have been the norm lately for Lisa Muth.
A member of East Leesville Baptist Church in Leesville, Muth has been helping at the incident command center at her church since last week. On Monday evening, she did not leave the church until 9 pm. The prior week, Muth left at 6 pm.
Muth said despite the long days, all of the disaster relief volunteers are thankful for the opportunity to serve the people of Louisiana.
“That’s our mission first, (to put) Christ first,” Muth said. “These people’s lives and homes may be in ruins now, but without Christ they will go to hell. That’s a blessing to share that. Teams are doing that now.”
