Biloxi - The Final Report

Well, we're done (for now). Left Biloxi Saturday AM (9 AM) arrived in Raleigh Sunday 2 AM, as some tired puppies. God's sovereignty and protection were evident, as a much-needed potty break in Atlanta turned into an opportunity to help several folks in a rear-end collision.

Bill and Katie and Lisa and Mike and Ron were able to help by checking the medical condition of the victims, directing traffic, and using some stuffed monkeys to calm the little girl in the front car (good job, Katie and Bill - the rest of ya'll, too).

Had some money left over (due to the generosity of our supporters) so we left a nice donation for the continued work in Biloxi. Even though we're almost two years out from Katrina, there's still a ton of work to be done. Bob gives the best description of the challenges still ahead in his July letter. The relief work at First Presbyterian is ending in December, and we hope to send a smaller team to help out the first week of October.

A big THANK YOU to everyone that supported us with their prayers, tools and $$. God answered your prayers - we used your tools and $$, hopefully as good stewards of both.

Continue to pray for Bob & Mary Lee and the relief work out of First Presbyterian, Biloxi. God hears and answers the prayers of His people.
