Tour 2013 - Telling Our Story

A Journey to Grace

Saturday morning, March 23, parents, grandparents and friends will be sending a wonderful group of young people to the city of New Orleans.  These young men and women will share their voices and the word of God each day until they return on March 30.  We will communicate with you each day with short messages about the activities we have participated in during the day.  In the past, we found that the ability to post a blog entry each day may be technically challenged.  This year we are adding Facebook and Twitter to our communication tools.  I am not very savvy with these newer electronic forms of communication, so wish us luck.Grant Dunderman and Wes Davenport will be coordinating our communications with you during our tour.  We hope our stories entertain and inform as we travel across the country.  We will be transported into a new world as we enter the Bayou country of south Louisiana.
