New Orleans Mission Trip- Day 2

I'm tired physically but emotionally drained. We worked again at Edgewater Baptist putting up sheet rock and other stuff. I got sent to Lowes near the church and it was packed. I can't believe I am in the USA. This place looks like nowhere I have ever lived. It reminds me of a third world country. We drove by several of the areas where the levies broke and it was depressing. Several of the homes had up to 7 feet of dirt and sand. An 80 year old lady came by Edgewater to have her house worked on. She cried in front of all of us telling us she lost everything she has. Jason Sampler has over 120 home on a list to help. I don't envy Jason's job. I am putting out a plea to churches to come down and help. Edgewater is really doing ministry. Talking about the SBC convention and IMB trustees and other stuff doesn't mean squat!!!!! These people are hurting and they need our help. Let's stop getting $350.00 a night rooms in Greensboro for some meaningless convention and get off our tails and help people. I'll be honest if I could I would divert all our CP $ to help Edgewater and these children of God that have been forgotten. I urge every church in America to do something.

I just got back today from Waveland, MS (ground zero), where our church has established a camp/mission (pathfindermission.org). The devastation is still terrible, but God is moving and people are open to the Lord. We, too, could use volunteers in a major way, as people have returned, but cannot live in their homes until they get fixed.

I agree. We need to get back to the work God has called us to. The IMB stuff is a joke and I've emotionally lost interest. It just makes me sad. We're just going to do what God has for us, despite the SBC. Thanks for going to New Orleans, my birthplace. My heart aches for the city. May God have mercy.

Being in the midst of the Gulf Coast destruction does cause the convention controversies to take a back seat, doesn't it? Our church will be sending our third construction team in as many months to Bay St. Louis, MS on June 3-10. The FBC there is doing an outstanding job of hosting large groups of volunteers to help that town and Waveland to rebuild. Our youth will be traveling to Biloxi that same week to do backyard Bible clubs for kids living in FEMA trailer communities and doing a series of concerts as well. Thanks for your efforts and may the Lord bless your labors there in these days.

Gary and Alan,

That's cool what your churches are doing. All churches should be helping. The needs are tremendous!
