Remebering Katrina

Filed under: Personal,Pictures — Neil @ 3:51 pm

It was 5 years ago that Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast.  Amanda & I were living in New Orleans as I attended NOBTS.  It was a defining moment for us.

Jobs, school, friendships were all gone/changed in a moment.  It was a chaotic time as we learned to deal w/ everything.  Through it all we found God to be faithful.

As tough as it was looking back I’m glad that we went through it.  God used it as a catalyst for us in just about every area of our lives.

The pictures are from Amanda’s school in St. Benard Parish.  The 1st picture was from a room on the 1st floor.  The 2nd was from an upstairs room.  It’s amazing what 12 ft of water can do.  We were able to go back to her school for the 1st time following Katrina in January.  Her classroom was on the 2nd floor.  Her class looked almost exactly like she had left it on the Friday before the storm.
