Safely here

We arrived in NOLA (New Orleans, LA) about 7:30 PM, after quite a day of driving. God was merciful to give us uneventful travel over the course of the day.
Left Duncan, SC Holiday Inn Express about 9 AM after a wonderful breakfast prepared by our new friend Rosa.

Drove all day, except for short breaks for gas and the requisite Subway lunch in Opelika, AL. Lisa and Mike did the heavy lifting with the driving.

Crossed Lake Pontchartrain at dusk and headed for New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (NOBTS), where we met Jay and Lillian, our contacts for the week (and also Kathy's cousin). Jay & Lilian took us across the street to meet our hosts, two seminary professors and their families. After meet & greet we headed out for a quick dinner before returning to hit the hay. Church tomorrow morning and then an afternoon of recon and stocking of staples for the week ahead.

Several in our host families are sick. Please pray for healing for them and protection from sickness for the rest of the family and our group.
