We have arrived at a town in mississippi and stopped to get some
supplies and food.... But we are actually seeing the result of katrina
as wal-mart had a lot of things that were out of stock. We were driving
around a neighborhood and the most common sight is piles of wood and
still a fairly large collection of downed trees. This town has
recovered but at almost a month later, the effects are still seen.
As far as we know right now the downtown area of new orleans is under
water and a restricted area. The suburb we will be working in is still
accessible but definately in need of help. And by the way, I know
people like to track weather (*cough* my dad *cough*) so a zip code that
is around the area that I will be working is 70001.
Please continue to keep us in your prayers.
