My New House!

…But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD — Joshua 24:15

I moved into the YAV house in New Orleans yesterday. My dad and I took a long 3-day road trip together from Tucson to New Orleans. We spent the second day wandering around San Antonio, and it was a nice break from driving.

On Thursday we drove from San Antonio to New Orleans and it was stressful. Texas got a lot of rain on Thursday and it made driving on the highway difficult. I could not see more than a few feet in front of me.

On Friday afternoon, we arrived at the YAV house. I was afraid that I had overpacked but there was room for all of my stuff (minus my winter clothes which I kept in my suitcase). I will be living here with 7 other YAVs. I am excited to get to know my housemates and start working here in NOLA, but first we will by flying to Stony Point, NY for YAV Orientation.

Here are some pictures of the YAV house:

Please keep us in your prayers as we travel to and from orientation and learn to live with each other!
