How about that! Seven young Amish men drove from Pennsylvania to south Louisiana to help gut flood victims’ houses. That’s one of the Amish men having some lunch on the jobsite. More details — and photos — on the Facebook page of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Zachary, La., where the Amish men served. The local folks call them the “Krewe of Samuel”. A “krewe” is a Mardi Gras club, and “Samuel,” because five of the seven men are named Samuel.

So many people from all around the USA are being so good to us in Louisiana in the wake of these devastating floods. Here’s a photo of Dan Christopulos and Alex Petrovsky, who were with an Orthodox crew gutting houses and helping folks these past few days. On Saturday, the IOCC team was working on a house in inner-city Baton Rouge, near to where Alton Sterling was shot, with a team from Nechama, a Jewish disaster relief organization. May God richly bless these good Samaritans from all over America who are coming to help us!
