New Orleans Mission Trip – Day 8

We are home! That about sums up Day 8. 🙂 We left New Orleans at 8:00 a.m. and arrived home at 9:15 p.m.

Before leaving, the team cleaned the house. They wanted to leave it better than we found it. While waiting for last minute details, the team had pop tarts on the porch.

pop tarts for breakfast

There was time for one more team picture before we left. This is a very special group of people.

ready to go home

We stopped at a Waffle House for “second breakfast” after we were down the road a way, and late in the afternoon we stopped in Memphis at a BBQ place to meet John for a late lunch / early supper. It was great to see John! He has been a mission team member in the past and we look forward to his joining us again when he is able.

Where ever we stopped, the guys had extra energy to run off.

team support

Russell titled that “Noah’s brush with death” while I favored “You can’t do anything without the support of your team.” Though you can see me standing off to the side *praying* no one breaks anything!!

We are very grateful for God’s watchful care over all aspects of our trip. The driving, the stopping, the working, the playing. He was good to us in every way, as He always is. We thank you, too, for all your prayers on our behalf. When you support us in prayer, you are a part of the team. Thank you!

    Hey, Rhonda~~

    I finally got to see all the mission photos that you put up. This is such a great testimony to the whole trip. Do you think we need a mission report, or shall we just tell everyone to look at your website?
