Yesterday marked our half way point, and a good day of ministry.
About half our group started the day on a prayer walk at the House of Hope (a relatively new church ministry in the upper 9th ward). We were able to walk through the neighborhood, meet a few people. A highlight of our time there was stopping to visit Ms. Ruby. Part of our group worked on our house last year and really built a strong realtionship with her. We were able to check in with her, see how the work on her house is coming, pray with her. It was wonderful to see her!
All of the crews continued on their jobs with good success.
Later in the day, we had a block party at the Upper Room Church. we cooked a few dozen hotdogs, handed out some bottles of water, played games with a few of the kids. We met a few of the neighbors, and learned a lot o what it has been like to live in New Orleans post-Katrina.
Today the other half of our group will be spending the morning doing a prayer walk at the House of Hope, and then we all are working on our sites
Thank you for your prayers!
