We're still working, still watching God transform lives, and still working alongside God's Kitchen, the umbrella organization over the former God's Katrina Kitchen.
Here are some photos of the not-yet-complete evacuation from our Camp Avenue site:
While the signature red-and-white dining tent came down July 31, it was a few days later before the kitchen's cooking canopy could be disassembled and moved into storage.
James drove the Barney Bus off to its storage site, while Ray and Steve and a full crew of helpers moved the volunteers' cabins two at a time. Here we see Cabin One, the former home of Church Army's NoAH program (and my home also) loaded and ready to move to storage.
With all the cabins moved into storage, the former volunteer housing site begins to take on a desolate look. The queen of James' sunflower garden looks on unperturbed, while six of God's Kitchen permanent staff remain housed in trailers on Camp Avenue.
Meanwhile, NoAH project volunteers Van, Freddie, and Terry prepared the first meal for the first team of volunteers to be housed at the Sanctuary.
This team was housed for a week at the undisclosed location of the Sanctuary in the Mystery Mansion, which is also the site of the Clubhouse (below) which now houses the Church Army Gulf Coast life transformation program.
In the upcoming post I'll update y'all (I've been down south too long) on the exciting things going on with the NoAH project, and the newly named Jacob and Joshua projects. Stay tuned!
