Church’s ‘Water Miracle’ Helps Shreveport’s Disadvantaged Kids [VIDEO]
Praise Temple's Bishop Larry Brandon talks about his church's plan to feed needy kids in the wake of school closings due to last week's storm.
Area school's have gone to virtual learning for the remainder of the week as they recover from the recent winter onslaught. As a result many children who depend on Caddo's school meal programs are in need of a short-term replacement.
"When there's a problem, let's find solutions instead of complaining," Brandon begins, "I'm grateful to partner with the food bank, as well, so many of our congregants donating and volunteering their time is making such a difference."
And meals will be served, Brandon says, at Praise Temple on Greenwood Road. "Lunch is from 11 to 1 and dinner is from 4 to 6," he says, emphasizing that the dinner is a hot meal. And it's grab and go."
The Bishop is also a bit mystified that, in the middle of water outages across the city, the Praise Temple spigots are flowing. "It's a miracle? Short of a miracle?" he says, smiling broadly. "Faith doesn't make sense, but it makes miracles."
