The team left Slidell at 6am. All has gone well today. We will be having dinner around 6pm at Englewood UMC in Englewood, TN. We will then proceed to Pleasant View UMC in Abingdon VA to spend the night. It was a great week! We're looking forward to reuniting with family and friends tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for all your prayers and support--we'll be anxious to share our stories of the week!

We would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. We will be home Sunday evening . We left all of our homeowners with "Hope" that their lives will soon return to normal.

We had a wonderful service to finish our week here in Slidell. We had Communion and revealed our "prayer buddies".

Here are a couple of our brothers and sisters whom we are blessed to serve.

We also made a trip into New Orleans. We visited the French Quarter. We even stopped at Cafe Du Monde.

After four and a half years there is still work to be done in the Greater New Orleans area. You will notice that Six Flags at New Orleans is not rebuilt.

Knee deep in drywall dust and loving it! Also, very important to concentrate with a sharp knife in the hand.!

Just getting started at Ms. Peggy's house, working on insulating the ceiling so it can be drywalled. As you can see we still have a lot of work to do, but we are excited! There is a group of approximately ten volunteers on this job site.
Work that still needs addressed, almost five years after Katrina.
