Fall Update - Oct. 2006    TDot2NOLA  

Project417 mission teams helping rebuild New Orleans Sept 2006
his has been a year of challenges. Project417 teamed with a group from The Salvation Army Corps 614 in Toronto and travelled to New Orleans for continuing Hurricane Katrina disaster relief work. Our Director, Rev. Joe Elkerton, had come to New Orleans last September as a first responder with the S.A. Corps and this year we have assembled several small short-term mission teams to return. (to be continued...)


"He will guide your path...".


Please consider supporting my mission work in both New Orleans and Toronto. I will be returning to New Orleans regularly to lead teams of volunteers as long as the rebuilding work continues. The destruction is unimaginable, and the media has not kept us up to date on the continuing misery faced by the tens of thousands of homeless, displaced poor citizens of New Orleans. Even after 13 months little real re-contsruction has been done! I have served the homeless street people in Toronto, and now am called to bring this outreach experience to those made homeless in New Orleans by disaster. Project417's work also continues in Toronto under the guidance of Rev. Joe Elkerton. Consider contacting him to help out locally, or join a short-term mission to New Orleans.
