Mabey Memories

The desire of my heart is to become the person God dreams of and share those dreams with others; to unleash personal and corporate creativiy within the church, overflowing it with passion and freedom while searching for the face and character of God.

Day 6

Okay so after awhile it seems like If you have viewed each days blog of New Orleans that it is the same every day, well now multiply that by the whole city. Just about every house was in or under water and all need to be rebuilt.

Until you have seen it you just might not be able to comprehend.

The whole city........
It will be years until they are back to normal.

Regardless of how you feel about the stupidity of the city, building below sea level or the comments of the mayor during the initial days after the disaster, there are people who have been there generations, who before the flood had nothing, and no one, and now have even less. They are people with children and grand children who are crying out for help, for hope for love.

Our team was there for a week and we did what we could and the people are grateful, but there is more to be done. I am trying to arrange a team to go back in June, and Pastor Steve Adams is taking a team in August if you are interested contact either one of us and we will hook you up. Know this, it is hard work, I have been on many other trips and many of them are hard and dirty but this was HARD! You will be tired and dirty, you will come back with what we have affectionately deemed the Kenner Cough, you will sleep on air mattress on the floor in the church,you will take your shoes off at the end of the day and leave them outside because of the muck you walked in all day, you might miss lunch, but you will know you helped, you may encourage the Pastor of a small struggling church, YOU WILL WORSHIP WITH ALL YOUR HEART on a Saturday night and have dinner with their people just about every night, and you will return knowing that you made a difference.
