Greetings from New Orleans! I am with the missions team from Our Place working with Crossroads Missions doing Katrina clean up. Today is my first day. I got in yesterday afternoon...
It is amazing that there is still so much devastation here. Just driving in from the airport we saw hundreds of abandoned houses and apartments, whole strip malls left deserted, gas stations boarded up, broken windows, damaged roofs... How long has it been? And still things are this bad.
We are just about to leave to head out to the worksite. Some of us are cleaning out houses and some will be doing construction. I am on the demo team. Should be fun. And sad at the same time. I'll blog more later.
Sorry its been so long since my last blog. Thanks to Terry for the encouragement to start again!!
