I wonâ€™t be blogging for the next few days because Iâ€™m going to New Orleans. Iâ€™m leading a group of students from the Criswell College to a staging area in Baton Rouge where we will link up with Southern Baptist Convention Disaster Relief. We will man a Salvation Army Mobile Canteen and will be responsible for distributing 300,000 meals per day in New Orleans.
The last several days, Iâ€™ve been blogging a lot about the political side of the Hurrican Katrina tragedy because I think the news coverage has been reflexively condemning of federal authorities. I am happy to say that I think that that tide is turning. In any case, I am hoping to have something very different to write about when I get back. I hope to tell some of the story of our trip after we return because I donâ€™t think that I will have access to the internet while I am there (and I donâ€™t think Iâ€™d have time to write anyway).
I would greatly appreciate your prayers.
