We came under the leadership of Trinity Christian Community for a week of ministering to people in an area hit particularly hard by 2004’s Hurricane Katrina.

One particularly touching moment came when accompanying a local pastor through a tour of the neighborhood.

A woman whose life was transformed by his ministry in earlier years stopped to embrace him.

What an image of Christ’s love for us:  Coming into the neighborhoods of our lives and (occasionally) being met with a tearful “thank-you.”
