Here is our Crash team. We have crammed in vehicles, become sweaty and filthy, and have made the name of Christ a bit more famous in New Orleans.
Saturday is a travel day. Hope to arrive in TH early Sunday morning. Thanks for the prayers and great support.
Would you love an experience like this? We have another trip in July. For more information, email Jeanette Souder at firstname.lastname@example.org.

As we were returning to camp Thursday night I heard the grinding of front brakes. Friday morning Jay “McGuiver” Mosteller and I tore into the brakes. Pads were shot and one rotor was needing replaced. If taken to a shop, this repair would have set us back $400 plus. How good is God? Check this: My Pops (who owns said van) had purchased lifetime pads at Autozone. A quick trip and we had new pads, for free. Shawn Foster was with us on the trip. Shawn is an assistant manager with O’Riley Auto parts in the Haute. A quick call and Shawn hooked us up with his discount. Total bill for new brake pads, rotors, seals, and labor? About 75 bones. Cha-ching.
