    Great to hear about this Katrina Relief Trip… it reminded me of my first one in 2005 with Mission to North America (http://www.pca-mna.org). I still keep in touch with some people I met in Metairie, LA.

    Reading this definitely made my day.

    I am very proud of our JMU Students.
    You are a blessing to our community, and to the lives you touched on the Gulf Coast.

    There’s a story in today’s Breeze about the Louisiana trip. The group also included local high school students and JMU staff/faculty.
