Adopt-a-Block Launches in Kenner

Well what a day it was for bar-be-que-ing- light rain, windy, and cold. I spent the afternoon cooking up chicken and sausage on the pits for our first adopt-a-block outreach. Around 5:30 we went into a neighborhood right next to our church where there are a whole lot of Fema trailers due to flood damage. We distributed hot meals and explained to folks that our church is adopting their neighborhood for the remainder of Decembed and that on every Tuesday and Thursday night we will bring them hot meals. Our first attemp went over real well. We are definately meeting a very real and practical need. Our initial plan is to get the church staff to do the first 2 weeks and then get families in our church to adopt their neighborhoods. Exciting times!
