03.2007: week 2

This week we were in Port Sulphur, Louisiana for Spring Break. It was a good trip and we got a lot of work done, and it was good to see progress from my trip down there in December.

Thursday morning Pastor Martin from Grace Harbour came up to Port Sulphur Baptist, where we had been working all week, and asked if we had a few people to spare for a couple hours to help move pallets of food. Each week they receive two shipments from Second Harvest New Orleans, each containing 20 tons of food (40,000 pounds). Martin said that they had the trustees down there working. Silly me, I thought he meant the older men and women of the church. What he meant was the Plaquemines Parish Inmate Work Force. Here's our picture with the guys.

Side note: I thought about cropping the picture, but I decided not to: the wall in the background and the trim around the door is part of what we did the last time I was in Port Sulphur.
