Lakewood Church opens doors for supply drive to aid Hurricane Ida

Pastor Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church is prepping ahead of time in the case Louisiana may need help. Lakewood Church opens doors for evacuees from Louisiana due to Hurricane Ida, if needed, along with hosting a two-day drive to gain supplies to aid in relief efforts.
