About the Trip


Campus Ministries embarked on an amazing adventure to the South over the 2008 Spring Break. After the exciting twelve hour ride they arrived safely in New Orleans, Louisiana. While there they lent a helping hand to the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. The members worked diligently on two houses that were damaged. Lacing up their construction boots and putting on their gloves, they did numerous tasks which included; putting up dry wall, painting walls and ceilings, moving furniture, flooring, and even gardening. In doing all of this, they went down there with the purpose of giving hope to a city that deeply needed it. With that mission on hand, they gave themselves the name, Team HOPE.
