    I went to New Orleans in January 2008 for a few weeks to work with Habitat for Humanity building new houses. Here’s a slide show of what I saw three years after Katrina in the 9th Ward New Orleans LA.  Just went down on my own and joined a random group.  There was still a lot of work to do then, and was even more after Hurricane Gustav.
    For a post from that trip, go here.

    NOLA January 2008

    A Psalm of David

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:

    He leadeth me beside the still waters.

    He restoreth my soul:

    He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death,

    I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:

    thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

    and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
