We decided this week that I will be going back to New Orleans once again to continue in the clean-up/rebuilding effort. Our staff team is sending 6, and we will be accompanying more than 25 students from the University of Portland.
We will be partnering with a church in New Orleans. Details of Campus Crusade's ongoing relief efforts are available here.
Why go back? The reasons are numerous. When I went in March it turned out to be one of the most powerful experiences I and the students from Portland had ever been a part of. More than that, there is a stunning amount of work still to be done, and many other relief agencies have left since the one-year anniversary has past.
We have students, both Christian and non-Christian, lining up to be a part of the ongoing relief effort. If God chooses to use us this way, we will gladly comply!
