New Orleans Mission Trip- Day 1

Our group began our work here in the Big Easy. It was great to meet Jason Sampler in person. He is a great guy and I admire the ministry he has at Edgewater. Their pastor Kevin Lee is a great guy who was very gracious to us. We began by removing all of the belongings of an 85 year old woman named Alma. It was depressing to see how all of her memories were literally washed away. The streets were eerily quiet. Alma's next door neighbor is a guy named Mike. He was very appreciative of what we were doing for his neighbor. He is Catholic and said the only church doing anything in the area is Edgewater. They are really meeting the needs of their community and it was our honor to help. Mike is not attending church but is considering attending Edgewater on a Wednesday night because they have a cook-out every week. I did not go into full blown witness mode because I realize that Jason and Edgewater are doing it everyday. I did pray with Mike and he took our picture with his own camera when we left. The rest of the day we helped Edgewater put up drywall in the building. Kevin and Jason were almost embarrassed to ask but we are here to serve them. I put up my first drywall today! Cool! We will be back at Edgewater tomorrow. Our guys have been great. It has been very emotional to see the lives that have been shattered because of Katrina. I want to challenge other churches to connect with Edgewater and come down to New Orleans. The need is great. I will share more tomorrow.

Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm grateful for your group's willingness to work with us. I've blogged about the devestation here but I think it is more meaningful coming from others. I'm looking forward to working with you the rest of the week.

By the way, I'm not positive about this, but I believe Bussey went an entire day w/o Starbucks coffee!!! That's suffering for the gospel :)

I did buy a Starbucks double shot of espresso from the grocery store.
