The 2009 Gulf Coast team is already off to quite an adventure and it’s only day one!  I often remind myself that if things always go perfectly, we won’t remember them. Our ASBers are certainly making memories this weekend. After a cancelled flight and a change in destination, we’re patiently awaiting their safe arrival in New Orleans, LA, where they’ll be greeted by a 12 passenger Camp Coast Care van that will take them back to Long Beach, MS. I’m looking forward to hearing their thoughts about their travel day…but I heard through the grapevine that the students are “being gumby” which is slang for Positive and Flexible!  Thanks, everybody!

    I look forward to reading all about your wonderful experiences down there in the Gulf Coast. I was on the first trip we made a few years ago and am anxious to hear about the progress in rebuilding.

    I spent most of my time in the social service office, listening to the stories of people who had lost homes and were living in FEMA trailers. Even in the most tragic stories, I was impressed with the strong threads of hope and sense of place which were woven throughout all of the stories.

    We are proud of your work and your courage to go LIVE !!!
