Hello Youth Leaders!
We hope all is well with you all, first and foremost, forgive us for slacking on the blog this past week. A large portion of the Mayo House staff (including our office) were in New Orleans last week on a mission trip. This is the 3rd year our staff has gone on a mission trip and the first year we’ve gone to New Orleans. We spent 3 1/2 days working on two different homes practically destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Most of our specific work was working on the laminate flooring and tiling but also some other side projects. Both homes are projected to be completed and moved back into by the end of May! Woo Hoo!
Needless to say we had a wonderful experience and we have a great organization to thank for that. We worked with the Episcopal Community Services of Louisiana, which is a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana”s office. They hosted us, supplied building materials, and crew chiefs for on site instruction and top to bottom were very professional and very good. They were well organized and prepared to work with us and did a great job leading our team.
We were very excited to work with them but were very sad to hear that they are falling short on money to keep all of their operations running. They have received a government grant but since it’s taking longer then expected to come through, they are in the midst of a fund raising operation to stay busy.

Thanks for your support!
