The Healing of New Orleans - An update on a Major Hurricane - What the Bible has to say about Natural Disaster and Healing in General. The Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina August 29th (2014) God permits trials large and small to call our attention to what matters most: our eternal destiny. God wants Hurricane Katrina to result in multitudes of otherwise dying people seeking him and finding him so as to gain eternal life – for this we should labor and pray. Hurricane Katrina was a terrible event. But God has brought good from it. Through death he offers resurrection life, if we will turn through faith.
