Rest of the team arrives

The rest of the team arrived tonight around 8 PM CDT. Much hotter here than it was even 50 miles up the road. Quite humid too. If you're from Raleigh, think Raleigh in the middle of August. We got checked into our bunkhouses - pretty nifty accommodations. The guys are in Creola and gals are in Iberville. The bunkhouses have some air conditioning, which is a blessing. The pictures were taken inside the church/dining room/meeting room.

Lisa was pushing water right away. I think this is going to be a real sticking point all week. Please pray we would remember to drink lots, as it's difficult to catch up once you're behind.

Once we got situated, the team hung out, talked and played some cards. We'll probably hit the rack early tonight (after showers, more water, etc). Tomorrow it's breakfast, church (Jean Larroux preaching and then taking off to General Assembly) and not sure what after that. Watch for another update Sunday.

Looks like a great blue cloud of witnessers to me! Glad to see/hear that you all arrived safely ---and are drinking LOTS of water:)

Great to see that your blog is up & full of info already. Looking forward to more pictures and info.
Until then,
Blessings to you and to those to whom you minister.

Thanks for the updates! Today Pastor Bryan encouraged us to read from the Book of Common Prayer. Here is a prayer from it for Missions:

O God of all the nations of the earth: Remember the multitudes who have been created in thine image but have not known the redeeming work of our Savior Jesus Christ; and grant that, by the prayers and labors of thy holy Church, they may be brought to know and worship thee as thou hast been revealed in thy Son; who lives and reigns with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

May God bless you all this week!
