New Orleans is a hopping city full of good food, music, and rich culture.
Located on the Mississippi River, this city is the birthplace of jazz and a melting pot of French, African, and American cultures. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina swept through New Orleans, striking a devastating blow to the livelihood of every resident. Nearly 80% of the city flooded, leaving a trail of destruction. Overnight, thousands of people became homeless and unemployed. The nation rallied around relief efforts in the early days following the hurricane, but slowly national attention shifted further away from those whose lives were destroyed.
It takes far more than bricks and lumber to rebuild a devastated city. Your youth group can partner with those who are helping rebuild lives and restoring hope in New Orleans.
On Sunday evening there will be a big community cookout where up to 150 people from around the community will join. Teams will help set up and serve at the event, allowing the congregation to interact with the community. For the rest of the week, you'll be running a sports camp for kids! Part of the team will go to the park/fields and start playing with the kids, while the rest of the team goes out to invite other kids to come. The team will make a detailed schedule of what they want the day to look like in order to keep the kids engaged... That includes singing a few songs with the kids and teaching a short Bible lesson.
God is calling you to journey with Him, to share His love with the nations and establish His Kingdom on earth. Will you join Him in New Orleans?
Pray for New Orleans
Many opportunities remain for missionaries and ministries, church planting and pioneer work. Pray for good church-mission relationships, and for the hope of the Gospel to be the focus of the people in the midst of the recovery from travesties like mass-shootings and hurricanes.
