The plan making process continues to progress for my trip to “war torn” New Orleans. If you recall from a previous post, I will be leading a group from my church as we go down to New Orleans to help serve the poorest of the poor to attempt to help the people of this ravaged area get back on their feet. We will be working with John Gerhardt of Urban Impact and Castle Rock Community Church in their recovery efforts.
The trip will be from February 4th through the 12th. We will be driving some vans down there in an effort to get the best bang for our transportation buck. Driving the vans will take us two days to get down to New Orleans.
We currently have nineteen people signed up for the trip and I know there are a few more who are still considering it. I am greatly encouraged by this awesome response. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
We still need to get some people lined up to fill certain key roles; you know like transportation coordinator, or housing coordinator. I hope to get those people in place in the next week.
I would greatly appreciate your prayers for wisdom and energy for me personally while leading this effort. Also please pray for all the right people to come along and for unity in the group and also safety for all the team. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
