OBI – Operation Blessings International is one of the organizations Project417 partnered with in New Orleans during Katrina. Our friend Jessica served with them this summer when they visited with Mr. Herbert Gettridge in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans. We had helped gut-out and renovate three Katrina destroyed homes for the Gettridge family in 2006. OBI have active disaster-relief programs worldwide and are very busy this year with the hurricane season – Ike, Gustav and Hannah.

Don’t forget to support Project417 and help the victims of Hurricanes Ike and Gustav.
