Safe and sound

The team has arrived in Slidell, Lousiana, our home away from home for this week. It was a pretty easy trip, except for the two hour delay leaving the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport. Even renting the cars was relatively painless this time around. That was a treat! The Motel 6 has great air conditioning, which we are going to appreciate. It's hot and muggy out there and it's 7:00 in the morning!

We're getting ready to head out on our first day of work. Haven't heard from our work co-ordinator yet, but I know where to find our contact person here! Hopefully everything goes according to plan...which seeing as how I don't really have a plan that will be interesting. :)

Please pray today for the team as we begin our first day. Pray that we will acclimate to the weather quickly, that we stay hydrated and cheerful! And pray for the people that we will be meeting up with, that God would be speaking to their hearts through our work.

We'd love to hear from you while we're away, so feel free to leave a comment on the blog. You don't have to sign-up or anything! Just helps to know that y'all are thinking about us!

Glad to hear things, especially God things are going well.
It can be so hard to give Him things.
At the community night dinner Jeff&I sat w/folks we didn't know who asked what else our church does and we were glad to tell about the mississippi mission.
God bless y'all, Ellen

Love that you are blogging this time. Glad to hear you all got there safe and sound. Prayers are coming your way from myself and a bunch of my pals. We are all so proud of you and what you are doing! Say hi to Timmy for me, we miss him already.

So glad that y'all have arrived safely in the field of the Lord! Be assured of prayers for your rapid acclimatization, continued good health and strong arms!
Remember to drink lots of water, get plenty of sleep and enjoy that southern cooking.

I'm looking forward to hearing how things are progressing.

With love from your friend on shore.
Hope your sails stay filled.

Praying that you get everything done today as you'd hoped! Feeling left out not being there but would never have gotten all the prep done for my Mom so as always, God knew best! Take care....Lynn
