We made it! Our team has arrived in NOLA and we are full of anticipation and excitement for the week ahead!
Sunday morning we gathered in the sanctuary and were commissioned with prayer in the 8:00am worship service at FBCO…such a special time seeing generations pray over our students and leaders. Despite the city wide power outage, having our church family pray for us and with us was a powerful moment for our students.
After a full day of travel, we were able to unload and get settled in the (tiny) dorm rooms at New Orleans Theological Baptist Seminary. We had an opening session of worship after dinner, and our campus pastor, Brandon, challenged us with Colossians 1 – reminding us how alive the Gospel is.
Even though the forecast calls for 80% chance of rain on Monday, we are prepared to be flexible and have good attitudes no matter what the weather is!
Stay tuned for daily recap videos and blog posts throughout this week. Don’t forget to send a team member a note of encouragement through fbcostudents.com/nola. Getting mail is always a highlight for students. (Feel free to send more than one!!)
