Put on your geography hats!

We are in little Ferry, NJ, a small, tight knit community on the Hackensack River in northern New Jersey.  Modest homes are tightly clustered behind the “berm” ( we would call it a levee).

Sandy pushed high tide up into the river, and overtopped the berm by about 9 feet.  Yes, 9 feet.  About 80% of the whole town was flooded.  Imagine what that would look like in your area–all basements, cars, first floors…  everything soaked with icky water.  And remember, it was october/November when this happened, so COLD…

And so it begins… Mission trip to New Jersey, October 2013

This morning four of us from Central Congregational Church are headed to Little Ferry, New Jersey to participate in Superstorm Sandy relief.  We have a minivan to pick up, packing to do and a 3 1/2 hour drive ahead of us today, but the weather is beautiful and we are on a MISSION!

No idea at this point what the situation on the ground will be, or what we will be doing, but it will be worthwhile and an amazing Adventure, we are sure.  Stay tuned!
