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.
Your team will be involved with inner-city ministry, building relationships, and feeding the homeless community. Pastor Collins and his team have an apartment complex where they hand out groceries and pray for people. They take one day to put on a VBS for the kids in that apartment complex, providing hot meals when they can. A couple times a year they put on a big cook out for the police department just to say thank you for their services, so you might get the chance to participate in that as well!
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.
