Everyone was happy to see the end of 2020, even though it looks like 2021 may not be much better. The first week of January my director and his wife, Mike and Mary, picked me up in New Orleans and went to Brownsville, Texas for the funeral of Linda Torres, one of our missionaries. Linda is married to Ruben Torres and died from the coronavirus.

While on the trip to Brownsville, a friend of mine, Kris Hochart, called with an idea to bring his children to New Orleans on a mini mission trip for the three day holiday. The whole stories on the inside.

Opening Up With Covid-19!!!

Even though we had a covid compliant camp in August, we did all of our activities with the youth virtually. So, September was when we were given the clearance to meet in person. On September 6, our youth minister, Nate Michel, was ordained. It was a great way to kick off the school year.

Quarantine & end of school!!!

We were having a great year with Next Gen going into the high schools. Our greatest success has been in Bonnabel High School where some of the students come to our youth group. We have also had a lot of success at Destrahan as more students were coming to club in bringing friends. We were in the high schools the first two weeks of March and then the schools were closed. That is when the quarantine began and we closed down the programs at church also.

Now we had to figure out a way to keep in touch with the youth & continue ministering. Nate, our youth minister, decided we were still going to meet on Wednesday night but now it would be virtual where we meet online. The first 20 minutes Nate gives a message. Then we go live with all the students. We usually have a live challenge for them to participate in. It has been very successful and we have been running as many students as when we met live.

New Year & New Challenges!!!

I started off the new year in Atlanta, Georgia at the Passion conference. Nine of us from the college and career group went to Passion which is one of the premier college conferences in the United States. There were over 65,000 college students there and the trip really united our group. More about Passion on the inside.

The second week in January is when we get back in the high schools after Christmas. Bonnabel High School has been really doing great. We have had consistent attendance and we have seen a change in the students. They are more open to the gospel and how it affects their lives. Destrahan High School continues to be a struggle in getting students to come to the club. Our attendance remains low but the students that come are real receptive to the gospel.
