Description
This is a short account of what I saw in New Orleans just a month after hurricane Katrina hit and the work God is doing there. It is what you didn't hear in the news about how the church responded to the disaster and how God has been using it to draw people to himself.

Summary
Just a month after hurricane Katrina hit I had the opportunity of going on a mission trip to New Orleans. This book describes my experience from the preparation for the trip to my return to Vancouver and the profound impact this experience has had on me.

Excerpt
Once we got there I was tired, and I started to lose focus. I started to ask myself the question “why did I even come here? What is the purpose? How will what I’m doing here make any difference? Is this the worst of the damage there is? What am I doing here?” That night the pastor gave a speech that put everything back into focus for me. He talked about the disaster in Indonesia and the work that God is doing there. He talked about how Muslim leaders were telling people not to pay any attention to those Christians that were helping them and how they were saying “what are you talking about, the only people who are helping us are the Christians and the American soldiers.” He talked about how God was working in New Orleans and how he wanted to build “a new, New Orleans.” He talked about how people’s lives were being changed because they realized that they were being helped by Christians. He talked about how people are saying “all my life I thought that Christians were hypocrites, but now I’m starting to think differently.” He told us story after story of conversion and renewal; and he said “I have been praying all my life that one day I would be part of a great revival; and if this isn’t it, I don’t know what is.”
