We had a team from LSU in town, staying at the church this week. But it wasn't one of those great athletic teams for which LSU is so well known. This was a mission team from the campus Wesley Foundation.
They were a great group who gave up their Spring Break. No trip to sunny Florida beaches for this group, just an 18 hour drive to a cold Cedar Rapids, IA to clean up homes damaged from the flood.
I caught up with a few of them cleaning a home in Time Check.
They had the onerous task of cleaning this house and prepare it for the next team to start rebuilding this back into a home. This is the very dirty part of the process, but there were no complaints. This crew knew how to have fun.
I had the pleasure of greeting this crew when they arrived very late last Saturday night. Then they joined us the next morning for Sunday service before they headed out and got to work. It was a real treat to host this fine group of young people.
