Going to Mardi Gras!
It's an exciting day!
Tomorrow morning my ministry partner and I head down to New Orleans for a few days of street evangelism in the Big Easy!
We have been looking forward to this for quite a few weeks and many prayers have gone up (and are still going up) for this trip.
We have been blessed by a number of dear Christians who have sacrificially given us the funds to make this trip possible. We received enough money to pay for a rental car and the place we will be staying at.
Because we are meeting up with a student at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, we were able to take advantage of staying at the Providence House (don't you love that name?) across the street from the campus. While most people are paying any where from $250 to $350 a night (and more) to spend a night during Mardi Gras, we are able, through our association with the seminary student, to stay at the Providence House for only $55 a night.
With the Providence House located right across the seminary, we are only 5-10 minutes from all the popular Mardi Gras spots.
We are taking a few thousand tracts, a video camera, a digital camera and my "Are You Ready" cross.
Please pray with us that God will plow many hearts in preparation for the gospel, grant us many opportunities to do 'One to One' witnessing, and allow us to openly read from the Bible for Project Ezra. Pray that we listen to the Holy Spirit and obey what we hear. Pray that God gives us the privilege of winning souls to Christ.
Also, please be in prayer for our families that we are leaving behind to go on this mission trip.
We are greatly excited and a little scared. We know that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
