Mission Team meeting
I go to Mississipi in less than three weeks. Wow. I am so excited, and so terrified. We had people from the first team showing slides and telling abiut their experience. It's one thing to see the devestation on TV- another to see pictures of people you know in the middle of it. Everyone who spoke teared up, and one big manly guy type outright cried reading an e-mail from a family they helped. These people were so grateful to have their houses finally stripped to the studs. One couple had been seperated from their 4 kids since Katrina. They were upstate with Grandma while mom and Dad worked their full time jobs and them came home and tried to clean up their house. I am scared of the emotional intensity. Am I ready for this? Or is it maybe one of the reasons I am going?
