Doing something

I'll be taking a bit of a vacation next week -- from blogging and from my normal way of life. Monday morning I'll get in an RV with five other people from my church and my home town and we'll take a little road trip south -- about 20 hours south, to Bay St. Louis and Biloxi in Mississippi. A truck driver and his wife will also leave, but Sunday afternoon, for the same area, taking the relief supplies people in my hometown have donated. The leader of our group is a doctor and he wanted to do something specifically to help the medical personnel who have worked tirelessly since Hurricane Katrina destroyed their communities. But of course, these people lost everything, too. So we hope to be an encouragement to them and supply some of their needs.

I suspect that I have no clue what I'm doing; but fortunately, God does. Please pray for us as we travel and distribute supplies. Thanks.

What a wonderful oppurtunity. Thank you for doing what you can. I just found your site from TL Hines' Christian Writers blog alliance. I'm also a Faithwriter. God Bless!

I hope your trip goes well, Linda, and that you are able to be strengthened and encouragement even as you provide strength and courage to those who need it.

Lindaruth,
May your trip be safe, your words meet the need, and your supplies be received as a gift from God.
