Donald Trump, Mike Pence Visit With Franklin Graham and Samaritans Purse Flood Relief In Louisiana…

Candidate Donald Trump arrived in Louisiana Friday and was met by crowds yelling “thank you Mr. Trump“, and “we knew you would not forget us Mr. Trump“.

It brings a great deal of joy to the hearts of many to see presidential candidate Donald Trump and VP candidate Mike Pence team up with Franklin Graham and the awesome people of Samaritans Purse.  (videos below)

Reverend Graham and his army of Orange Shirt volunteers are working hard to aid the flood ravaged community within Louisiana.  They have a field command offices set up in Lafayette and Baton Rouge.

Orange-clad team members of Samaritans Purse are helping homeowners salvage precious home belongings and then assisting them in taking out waterlogged items to the curb.  They also remove damaged walls, sheetrock, insulation, and flooring—and in some cases ceilings.

In addition Billy Graham Rapid Response Team chaplains are on hand in each city to provide spiritual and emotional care:

“These families need our help.  We want to remind them that they are not alone and show them God’s love as we help them recover.”  ~ Franklin Graham

Trump landed Friday morning at the Baton Rouge airport and was met on the tarmac by Republicans Rep. Steve Scalise, Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser and Attorney General Jeff Landry.

The Republican candidate — wearing his signature “Make America Great Again” hat — shook hands briefly with the officials before heading to the motorcade. His running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, also met Trump at the airport and planned to join on the tour.

    My heart was filled with joy and my “faith” was strengthened as I watched Donald Trump, Michael Pence, and Franklin Graham there for one thing, and ONE THING ONLY, to Glorify God by coming to the aid of God’s people in need.

    Thanks SD. Donated to Samaritans Purse. I watched the live feeds for Trump yesterday on RSB. He [and Pence] really handled it well. Very classy what he did, particularly with the truckload of stuff he sent down.
    With regards to comparison of current “Leadership” I am reminded of Emerson’s quote; “Your actions speak so loudly I can not hear what you say”. ACTION is all. Way to go Mr. Trump. We are with you.

    It is heartening to see real leadership in action when it counts…The Graham/Trump/Pense joint
    effort to encourage the people of Louisiana bespeaks the America we know and love. If one state
    hurts, all states hurt and we are showing our unity by contributing to Samaritans Purse and the
    Salvation Army and urge others to make their difference.
