Block Party…

Last Sunday our team hosted a neighborhood block party that was a huge success.  We had around 70 people attend and most of them hung around until it got dark.  It seems that many of our neighbors are beginning to see our team as agents of peace and blessing.  They are beginning to ask questions about … Continue reading »

Nolan turns 2!!!

Nolan was saying “Nolan’s birthday!” all yesterday. He is very excited to be a big 2-year old now!

And we soaked up every last moment with our … Continue reading »

Rebuild and Rebirth…

Nehemiah 1:3  They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.” It has only been one month since we have been here and yet as each day goes we … Continue reading »

Ladies getaway…

While we were only gone for 51 hours (yes, I was counting!)… I was sooo grateful for the rest. We stayed at a state park in Mississippi where we seemed to be the only campers. There was one cabin, where we stayed, and several available tent and RV sites. There was plenty of nature to … Continue reading »

We are back!

We arrived back in New Orleans yesterday around 3pm. The first thing we all did was head into our houses to assess the damage. The other houses weren’t too bad off (siding needing to be repaired and some plants damaged). Our house, though, had some work to do. We are so grateful that it was nothing … Continue reading »

Bye Bye Now….

We are leaving Florida tomorrow morning at 8am.  At this point our neighborhood still doesn’t have power but that could change overnight (at least we hope).  This afternoon I was reflecting on all the chaos this past week.  Just a few days ago we left our houses thinking that a category 4 and potentially 5 … Continue reading »

Looking forward to going home!

We thought we’d be at home by this time, but alas, God had different plans. The city is still closed… They are working hard to restore electricity and clean up downed trees. We are hoping we’ll be able to leave tomorrow, but know that Thursday is a possibility. No matter what the circumstance, we are … Continue reading »

Headed home?

If all goes well we will be heading home tomorrow in the am. We are all anxious to see the city and jump back into life. We heard from a neighbor that there was no flooding on our street, just power outages. There’s no telling what will happen between now and tomorrow, but we don’t … Continue reading »
