Yesterday was too full of activity that our overwhelmed and sleepy small group went right to bed as we returned to the hotel, so this is a bit later than we hoped. Wednesday began by kicking the day off small group bonding around the city, partnering with Pastor John’s group! Hit up Bourbon Street, the French Quarter, Voodoo museum, and Sarah’s favorite store– OLD LUTHERAN! We tested our limits with some new foods, muffulettas at a local Italian deli! And spent quite a bit of time working on our fashion sense with masks and feather boas. All of which resulted in a much needed drink on Bourbon… Water that is!
After a fun filled afternoon, we rushed to the SuperDome for our mass cast rehearsal as Kristin and Noah rocked the lip dubbin’. Being in the presence of 36,000 fellow enthusiastic Jesus lovers was incredible! We pulled up our ‘Lutheran bootstraps’ and hopped in a conga line or two, and listened to inspiring speakers and musicians truly encouraging all of us to ‘Make a Change’!
Topped the night off with a delay in our departure but some much needed singing in the cool rain!
– Amy’s small group! Sarah, Matt, Shea, Sheyanne, and Amy!
