In Austin churches partner together more than any city I’ve ever lived! Together several churches have discovered a remarkable woman who has allowed us to partner with her as she meets the needs of those she serves in East Austin.
After being displaced by Hurricane Katrina, Lola moved from New Orleans to Austin. She opened a restaurant called Nubian Queen Lola’s Cajun Soul Food Cafe. Not only is the food delicious, she gives it away to those who cannot afford to pay.
Lola has been nominated as a finalist in the Say Thanks Austin campaign. For every vote she receives, she will receive $1 to help her help others. The finalist with the most votes will win $10,000!
Watch below to see and hear from Lola along with Steve and Karen Markham, the Gateway Network Leaders who have mobilized us and inspired us to serve with her.
