Hurricane Laura (aerial view)Aid organizations are once again responding to a Gulf Coast storm including one that has spent countless hours helping hundreds of people recover from Mother Nature’s fury.

Samaritan's Purse spokesman Bruce Poss reports that crews are already on the move to help storm victims of Hurricane Zeta but insists the most important work is watching the Body of Christ at work.

“The people will be able to see the gospel in action, see the Parable of the Good Samaritan really lived out,” he says, “to help that person who's in the ditch. And so we are very much about doing that and these people they've been impacted over and over again this year.”

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is working with teams from Samaritan's Purse to deal with an abundance of spiritual needs.

“They provide rapid response team chaplains that go out,” he advises. “They're there for our volunteers who may be seeing the damage and things that they've never seen before. So they have a ministry to our volunteers that are there but also every homeowner is visited by one of these chaplains.”

While crews are cutting downed trees, temporarily patching roofs and doing mud outs, Samaritan's Purse is working to also mend hearts.
