From Samaria back to Jerusalem

Well we are back in Charlotte. Our trip to New Orleans was emotional to say the least. We were all changed by the destruction of homes, lives and families. I don't think we will ever be the same. New Orleans was our Samaria. It is a long way from home. The people at Edgewater are truly ministering to the Gentilly community. I am so proud of them. Jason Sampler said something to us Friday night that was very profound. He challenged us to remember that the needs in New Orleans are very visible. We saw houses, cars, churches and lives in shambles. However, he said in Charlotte their are hurting people too. They drive their cars into nicely painted garages. They have good jobs and all appears wonderful on the outside. But there are hurting people everywhere. I spoke from Acts 1:1-11 today. (I have one more service to speak). I challenged our church to be on mission in our Jerusalem. I again beg people to go to New Orleans and help Edgewater. They still have over 120 homes on their list to gut and they will never finish at the pace they are on. Alan Cross also mentioned the Mississippi Coast is a mess. We drove through Gulfport yesterday and it is amazing how bad it is there too. Our group wants to go back in the Fall. I challenge you to go too!

Two points of clarification:

1. We have over 160 homes on our list.
2. I've never been accused of saying something profound :)

Seriously, thanks for all of your hard work. It was a joy hanging out with your crew. Come back and sweat with us some more!
