2010 Mission Trip

New Orleans/Metairie, Louisiana—25 youth, 11 advisors
Our third NOLA trip was a success in spirit and work.  Good Shepherd UCC once again graciously hosted us and gave us a tour of New Orleans on our long first day there. 

Five years after Hurricane Katrina, so much rebuilding still needs to take place on the Gulf Coast.  St. Bernard Project had us split the group into seven teams around St. Bernard Parish and the lower Ninth Ward in NOLA—mudding and taping, laying floors and installing sheetrock. 

Thanks to our AmeriCorps supervisors and some hard-working youth, we accomplished much in our work teams.  Just as importantly, we met many people whose perseverance and faith in God were inspirations to us all, and we grew as a community of faith.
