One of the work teams of AB GIRLS. (Second from the right is former NLT youth member, now a young adult woman, Becca Whitaker. Nice to see you again, Becca!)
Some relaxation time. (Second from left, AB GIRLS NLT adult Rev. Angel Sullivan--normally the one taking pictures so it's unusual to get her actually in a picture!)
The NLT members worked with other AB GIRLS to plan and lead one evening's worship for all workweek participants. Here they invited some young men to lead a portion of worship.
Group building games were a part of the worship experience. (Second from right in this photo, Vickie Goff, ABHMS staff responsible for the work week, and consultant to AB Women's Ministries.)
Another relaxation time and opportunity to see some of New Orleans--as well as bond with other AB GIRLS!
At the Cafe Du Monde, about to have world-famous beignets and cafe au lait.
And, of course, you have to play with the Mardi Gras masks!
Touring some of the sites related to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
Building new relationships.
AB GIRLS spoke of their experience during the closing worship on Friday night.

Yep, they got just that dirty. But it was a rewarding week for all involved.
