So... New Orleans. Wow. It's a little different than I remember it in 2011. But hey? Memories fade. It's We live in Uptown/East Carrollton. It's close to Tulane, Loyola, and Audobon Park. The house is awesome. I have a roommate again, and his name is Bennett. He is also a second year and served in South Korea last year. We've already bonded over Guitar Hero, so we're pretty much best friends. The second years arrived in NOLA while the first years were in YAV orientation in New York. Remember when I was there? So long ago. There are 7 YAVs in the house this year: 4 girls, 3 guys, which isn't too much of a different dynamic than the beginning of last year.

I'll be working part time with Mid-City Ministries and part-time with Lakeview Presbyterian Church (with the late great Barrett Milner). I visited Lakeview Pres on Sunday and am very optimistic and extremely excited. Work doesn't start until September 2, as we have a full week of orientation. But I'm more than excited. We get to do a bunch of touristy things this week, and I'll fill you all in once orientation is over and I start working.
God be with you.
