New Orleans Mission Trip- Final Day
Wow! This week has flown by. We are all tired physically and emotionally drained. Our men have worked hard to help Edgewater get back on their feet. We have mixed feelings about leaving. We see so many needs in the community and at Edgewater. We are ready to get back to our families but see our mission as just a drop in the bucket. I don't know how else to say this but please consider bringing your church groups down here to help out. My family watches Extreme Makeover Home Edition every week and we are always moved. What if the SBC through NAMB or whoever decided to come down in mass for one week and fix churches like Edgewater and others. Imagine thousands of SBC'ers storming the city to make a difference for one week. These people are being the hands of feet of Jesus to this community. We will spend millions of dollars in Greensboro for our SBC convention. What will be done for God's Kingdom? I think we have our priorities out of whack. There was a group from FBC Thomasville, GA working with us today. I met several SBC'ers from Oklahoma yesterday working down here. Seeing churches band together to help one another gives me hope for the SBC. Please pray that God will send more to make a diffference here in New Orleans. In other news Jason Sampler's FEMA trailer was condemned by Mayor Ray Nagin while he was away. I don't know who would have done such a thing. :) I will have pictures of it next week! Jason and Kevin are taking us to eat so I've got to go.
