“There were many parts of the trip that I enjoyed. I really liked seeing the city and also a small stretch of the Mississippi from a paddleboat that we rode. It was also very fun to see all the different speakers and musicians who shared the work they are doing for Christ with us in the Superdome. It was very fun to meet people from all parts of the country and share Swedish fish packets with them. I enjoyed the authentic Louisiana meal that we shared and my swamp platter, (alligator, crawfish, and frog legs) was spectacular. our service project (pulling weeds) was very fulfilling and it really made me feel like we did something useful. The trip that we made to the Ninth Ward and the Lower Ninth Ward by bus after pulled weeds was very sobering. While our time in New Orleans was very fun and uplifiting, the train ride and layover in Chicago were also highlights of our trip.” Hans
