The once 'Florida Project' has since been demolished and the empty lot that now remains sits across the street from House of Hope. I've heard multiple times from Pastor Gerald how this used to be the most dangerous project in New Orleans. According to Wikipedia, it was one of the most crime-ridden areas and:
As of the census of 2000, there were 1,604 people, 399 households, and 346 families residing in the neighborhood. As of the census of 2010, there were 6 people, 2 households, and 2 families residing in the neighborhood.

Thank you Lord for the opportunity to meet Kevin. Thank you that this encounter has challenged the context of the purpose of Christ in me. Thank you that we all come to the cross in need of a Savior, in need of redemption!
