New Orleans Bound

I'm heading to New Orleans for a couple days of work - My peer promised to take me to the Ninth Ward for a tour. I haven't been to the Crescent City since 1996 since the Promise Keepers Men's Conference at the Superdome.

I'm not a big fan of the French Quarter or MardiGras; I'm more interested in talking to the residents how they have coped in the midst of challenges of piecing their lives back together.


I'm wondering how the rebuilding process is moving along; the relief work I was part of during the Hurricane Rita damage while in Sulphur, LA for TN Baptist Disaster Relief trip Oct 11-15, 2005 was a life changer for me - especially how one person can make a difference versus sitting on a couch or a pew.
