Risk Everything......I hear it.....
Listen and follow...I hear that as well.....

Taking a group of HS students to New Orleans.......feels risky....not so much the taking of the kids..These are great kids and we have a good number of adults responsible for their safety.....




it's ME.....

  • doing physical labor (I'm a flippin receptionist sitting on my butt all day!) .....
  • maybe not sleeping in the best conditions....
  • maybe not getting enough sleep
  • driving in a car 2 days......

all so minor, absolutely trivial compared to what the people of the Gulf Coast are and have been in for months.....and yet it all has me a bit scared...in a really good and exciting way.... I want to HEAR You......I want to live risky......I want to do this with these kids and come back and say we followed YOU, we listened to YOU, we were obedient to YOU.......

So now I need to pray don't I? ...I need to BE still....I need you to pray for us and with us.....

I'm praying for you. I work for New Orleans Seminary and I know personally many of our faculty, staff and students who have lost everything they owned. You will receive a wonderful blessing for being obedient to His leading. Remember Paul...he found joy in suffering for Christ.
