New Orleans Update   Leave a comment

Amy Ukena; Dan, Bonnie, and Elise Hariton; Nancy Lemon; Barbara Cook; Lisa Hlass; Michael Miller; Kathryn Burroughs; Makenda Burroughs-Miller; and Sylvia Sugg will be traveling to New Orleans this year. We are going to be part of a building blitz coordinated by Church World Service, Crescent Area Recovery Effort and eight denominations, including UCC. We will be paired with another denomination to work in Little Woods in east New Orleans. This area was selected because of its diversity, its lack of prior attention, the size of the homes (1,200-1,400 sq ft), its ability to host volunteer teams, and the potential for the ecumenical community to make a large impact.  Hopefully families can be returned to their homes soon.  Please hold us in your prayers the week of May 2-9, that we have safe travel and that we can make a difference in New Orleans.  –Sylvia Sugg
