2009 New Orleans Mission Trip - Day 5

We had a great day.  Early to the work site and continued shingling.  At 10:30 we drove over to the dedication of a completely rehabilitated home.  There were representatives from the mayor's office, the Salvation Army, Red Cross, United Church of Christ Disaster Response Team, our mission team, and many of the UCC volunteers who had initiated work on this particular home over two years ago.

Today was roof until you drop day.  We finished with the tear-off, got the roof all felted in and started shingling.  While hammers pounded above, part of our crew helped with cleaning the yard of debris left from the flooding and helped with cleaning inside.  The homeowner is very delighted and our group feels grace is being shared in a real and great way. 

2009 New Orleans Mission Trip - Day 3

This morning we traveled to the 9th ward.  We were in the East end which is right next to Lake Ponchartrain.  Less than half the homes in what was once a middle-class neighborhood are habitable.  Our task today was to rip off an entire roof and reshingle. 

2009 New Orleans Mission Trip - Day 2

6:30 a.m. came early, at 8 we were rolling to the mission base at the UCC church.  We were to roof today but the hurricane watch and tropical storm warning made roofing not the best call.

2009 New Orleans Mission Trip - Day 1

We made it!!!  928 miles, 16 hours.  Hurricane watch, coastal flooding predicted!  We had a safe trip, tired.  At 8 a.m. Monday we will meet the local coordinator and get our work site assignments.  Pray for us, we're ready to go, hurricane or not!  We had communion this evening, missed being with our church family at Country Club Christian Church.
