Mission of Hope 2- A presentation of a second mission trip to Mississippi (March 18-22, 2006). Hope Lynch was an online student of mine last year (From Sussex County Community College). This presentation is eveidence she "got it" as it concerns "new media". In addition, this is a very good selection of photos and music to illustrate the devastation in Mississippi. This was "Katrina". Hope notes that it is yet 6 months from their last mission trip to help and little seems to have changed. From my own experience with friends and relaatives living in the Ivan "zone of destruction", I'd say they might expect another year before they begin to see appreciate the cumulative small bits of change that occurs from the massive self-help and volunteer efforts tha t go into reconstruction. It takes many hundreds of thousands of volunteers to bring areas like this back to normalcy. It would take decades instead of years to recover if not for the generous help of volunteers, such as the Hope For Life ministry in Dingman's Ferry, PA.
