A Different Kind of Adventure - Serving in Dulac, Louisiana

Hi everyone! This is a different post then most you will see on Durhamblogger. It has nothing to do with kayaking... but everything to do with helping others in need.

Several years ago, my wife and I were part of a mission trip to Dulac, Louisiana to help with rebuilding efforts. We were so moved and impacted by these people and their plight... that we have returned every summer (for the past 4 years) to help and fellowship with some remarkable folks.

So, for the next week (July 23 - July 31), I'll not be paddling North Carolina waterways... but instead will be helping others who were left up the creek without a paddle.

Please pray for our mission team...Mike, Rachel, Dean, Carol, Linda, Gracie, and Mary... and we'll talk when I return. Peace all.

Post Update (8/1/2011)
Our mission team returned home safely from Dulac, Louisiana on Saturday (July 30). A young mother with three small children now has clean and rebuilt bedrooms and bathroom! Our work was hard and the hours long, but in the end, a family has been impacted in a positive way. Don't fall for the lie that you can't make a difference in someone's life...
