Operation Noah- Sunday: Church in Mississippi
On Sunday, we left our hotel in Mobile, Alabama, and drove to Gulfport, Mississippi, where we went to church at New Evening Star Baptist Church. This is the church that we helped in January 2006 to repair after it was damaged by Hurricane Katrina. At that time, Rev. Charles Harris was pastor. They have a new pastor now, but Rev. Harris and his wife were there, and there is a picture of him (seated in the chair) and his wife with our group. It was a great service, and wonderful to see the church doing so well. They baptized six young people at the beginning, and I remembered that we had repaired the ceiling above that same baptistry back in 2006. The members were excited to see us. After church, we drove on to New Orleans.
