.:Team New Orleans:.
Early this morning, a team of people from 4 Diocese of Albany churches headed out to New Orleans to serve alongside our brothers and sisters of the Diocese of Louisiana in their continuing Hurricane recovery effort.
Our folks will be serving at the Church of the Annunciation’s distribution center and other ministries, as well as helping to empty some houses of debris. The team leader is Fr. Brad Jones; the group is comprised of a total of 21 disciples, both laity and clergy, ranging in age from 14 to 52 from Christ Church (Schenectady), Calvary Church (Burnt Hills), St. James’ Church (Oneonta), and Holy Cross Church (Troy).
My daughter, Cathie, is among the team members, and I’m really proud of her for being part of this team. I’ve had the honor to be the trip coordinator. As my “during the trip” duty, I’ll be posting prayer requests, updates and pictures at .:Team New Orleans:. You can also let the team know that you’re praying for them by leaving a comment there.
Please keep them and those they’ll serve in prayer from today until July 3.
Please also pray for my son, Tim.
Since Friday, he’s been having what we’re describing as a tremor of his right arm. His arm is uncontrollably moving in a twisting (like using a screw driver) or flexing motion. All the time. We’ve been to the ER, with no clear diagnosis. Waiting for a primary care appointment, to be followed by referrals to specialists and tests. Please pray for Tim.
