Missions Trip: Wednesday Update

(See more great pictures on our Flickr site here!)


Keenan has a friend, Kattie G. from Darien, a registered nurse, who joined us today and was a great blessing. The guys commented, "Finally God came through and provided someone to help in the kitchen and washing cloths, ha-ha!!" What a fun bunch of fun guys we have down here. Christie and I can truly say the spirit of peace and the joy and glory of the Lord is evident in each one of these men.

Today was a big day for getting the word out regarding our missions project here in Long Beach, MS and Chalmette, LA. God opened up a door through our brother Keenan to give a 45-minute live interview with Brice Phillips, owner and operator of, WQRS 103.5 FM, the only radio station to survive in Katrina Gulf Coast area after the storm.

That afternoon we met with Pastor Derek and others from WPT, Chalmette, LA to continue sharing our vision regarding rebuilding their church and evangelizing the community; Bro's Ray G. and Frank B. cooked up a wonderful cajun cuisine, seafood gumbo, boiled shrimp & crawfish, sweet potato dessert, and we ended celebrating Adam C.'s big 41st birthday with live music complete with singing & dancing crawfish, you had to be there...

After the older guys crashed for the night, the younger guys, led by none other than our new arrival Carlos D., stayed up late running the road!. They were strictly counseled by the older guys when they returned.

On a more serious note, thanks to the families who let these guys participate in kingdom work, and also for everyone praying for the success of in this ministry. The team down here are changed forever.
