Outreach New Orleans: Day Six

The days have run together and we have to remind ourselves that the weekend is here. Friday was filled with finishing the projects we’ve been working on all week at All Nations Fellowship. We’ve seen the amount of progress that a week can bring and it’s really amazing. We had an amazing team of students and leaders, push their bodies to do an awesome job this week.

We took off a few hours early today so that we could prepare for the Urban Vibe Outreach with the church. We spent time walking the streets letting the community know that we had a concert, free food and give-aways. When 7 p.m. rolled around, people slowly came out with the smell of grilled hot dogs coming from the church.

At the end of the night, Dre the Nomad and Corey Hicks put on an awesome show. Most of all, 13 people came to know Christ tonight. Mom’s, children, teens and a father all took that first step to walk with Christ. The Collision team really stepped up and let God grow them outside of their comfort zone tonight.

Tomorrow we’re taking a day to really see the city of New Orleans. All Nations Fellowship still needs a lot of help, but our week here is coming to an end. We’ll miss the time that we’ve spent working hard on this project, but the heart of servanthood is coming back to Columbus with us.

    This is awesome for you and your group to have experienced. I’ll bet the entire group has grown inwardly in many ways. Thank you for your passion and leadership. You’ll never know just how much you have impacted lives until you get to heaven!
    Love you,
