NO LiMiT Team Report, Day #1

Six members of our NO LiMiT Team (New Orleans, Louisiana, Missions Team) began their work with Hope Church in Waldheim, Louisiana.  Here's the report from the team on their first day:

We all got such a blessing today!

The guys fixed part of a roof for a family who's home was hit by a couple trees during Katrina. (Actually, it's hard to find a home that wasn't hit by a tree in Katrina. ) The family actually lived in New Orleans prior to the hurricane. They stayed through the storm, and were fine…. until the levees broke. It was the flooding that destroyed their home. They were lucky that they had an old piece of property with a house here in Waldheim. There were 3 people living in the house. A brother and sister and their elderly mother. The sister was actually swept away by the flood waters and grabbed hold of a stop sign until her brother could come and rescue her. They were a very nice family. Please pray for Arthur and his family.

So what did the girls do while the guys were on the roof? We stacked wood from a tree that had been cut up, raked the front yard, and cleaned up the shingles that came off of the roof. We were working hard too!

It is about 6pm at the time of the email. Us gals are back "home" fixing supper. They guys have gone to put up a new pump house for another family. It is such a blessing to be able to do things to help these people, and they appreciate it so much. Please pray that our strength holds out and everyone stays healthy! Praise God for this wonderful opportunity!

In Christ,

NO LiMiT Mission Team

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns" (Isaiah 52:7, ESV).
