Deann, Katrina and Church Compassion
I've known Deann Alford since I was in Kindergarten, and even earlier. She is someone who could probably tell you stories about me growing up that I would prefer she just keep to herself. That's why I'm glad that these days she tells stories that matter.
She's currently covering responses by churches to the Hurricane Katrina crisis for Christianity Today and other publications. She's just written a great piece covering 2nd Baptist Church of Houston's "Operation Compassion" that includes a great quote from Ed Young, Sr.
