Christians Uniquely Prepared to Help Hurricane Victims, Says CEN Chairman

Praying, and demonstrating the love of Christ through caring and sharing is the response Christians are showing

(CEN, August 29, 2005) - Hurricane Katrina, which smacked ashore along the Louisiana and Mississippi border as a category 5 level storm about daybreak, is now making its way up the Mississippi Delta with top sustained winds now at about 95 mph - more than 50 mph lower than the gusts at the height of the storm. Still, danger and needs remain, so Christian Emergency Network (CEN) Founder and Chairman Mary Marr calls upon Christians to help share the love of Christ in this trying time with a single voice, and to heed the advice of emergency preparedness experts.

"The most important steps Christians can take at this time is to share the hope found only in Christ through a message of prayer-care-share for those impacted by the storm, and those providing relief," said Marr.
