2 adults and 5 youth left this afternoon for a week of service at Project Homecoming in New Orleans, LA. We are so grateful for all of the support our communities and families have shown as we got ourselves ready for this adventure. We represent 3 churches and lots of love – we will share your love and support with the people we meet.
In case you’d like to imagine what we’re up to each day, here’s a basic schedule:
Sunday & Saturday are travel days.
Monday – Thursday work on a home from breakfast through the afternoon
Friday – work at a community garden (we’re gonna play in the dirt!)
Each night we’ll have something new to do like tour the areas devastated by hurricane Katrina (levies, 9th Ward, etc.), meet and talk with Katrina survivors, tour a bayou and learn about conservation, go to a museum on slavery, and, yes, play in the French Quarter!
If you signed up for emails, they’ll be coming soon. If not, do check back here for a mid-week update. We appreciate your prayers for a safe and fabulous trip learning and serving in New Orleans, LA!
Together We Serve!
