BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A Bossier City church delivered more than 200 buckets of hope to Baton Rouge flooding victims before helping them start the rebuilding process.  

Asbury United Methodist Church spent days collecting cleaning supplies and then traveled to south Louisiana to deliver them this past weekend. 

"Asbury is partnering with First United Methodist of Baton Rouge for mission trips," says Asbury's Angela Pfanner.  That relationship led to this partnership to help post-flood.  

"They said the Baton Rouge residents are getting weary, it's overwhelming," adds Pfanner, leading the church to pair up with FUM-Baton Rouge for this project.

After delivering 240 buckets of donated cleaning supplies, the volunteer team spent two days ripping out drywall and cleaning out the home of a single mother who lost everything inside the home.

Asbury volunteers plan to return every weekend for as long as it takes. Together with Grace United Methodist Church of Shreveport, they have launched a Geaux Help Facebook page to update everyone on their mission work in Baton Rouge.
