   “All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created. Life was in Him, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it.”                      ~ John 1:3-5 HCSB 

   Thank you for checking out our 3rd Annual Outreach Guide! We’re grateful for our issue sponsor Eden Scapes, as well as all our additional page sponsors, and we pray you’ll see the value in taking a moment to share this list on your Facebook page, and email to anyone who could use the list to help others, and share the list with those around you in need.  

   If this is the first time you’ve seen this resource, know that it was birthed by the desire of one of our founders to make certain our community could see and utilize all the love and help available to them in their times of need, right here in Acadiana.

   When you know the love of Christ, and He has changed you, you want others to know that light and be in that light too. Coming out of such a tough year, and darkening times in our culture, now more than ever we have a chance to BE THE LIGHT to those who don’t yet know the hope of His plan for their lives. Won’t you help us show the world the darkness doesn’t win—His light and love conquers all!
