I agree with you on short term mission work being a good option. My wife and I go on a short term trip each year with our Church (Baptist). However, our Church wants persons going on the trip that are active with a ministry within the Church here. If you aren't being faithful in serving locally, ...

Just some info to consider in making your decision - they only have the parade on the first Saturday of December. Also, the fireworks show is the longest on this Saturday. It is very nice the other weekends and there is less of a crowd than the big weekend.
Church Street Inn or a B&B downtown w...

If you take the the Cypress/Flora exit, be careful coming north on Hwy 1. They have a new police chief in the Village of Natchez and they are seeking to increase their income.
You can go to the next exit - Exit 132 - and cut over to Hwy 1 and avoid the speed trap. Parking should be easier on thi...

There are also a ton of B&B's around downtown. You might not have any luck with it being so close. There are a couple of other low end options for hotels that would require a good walk, but I would not recommend these.
Several hotel options at the I-49 exit, but they may be booked up....

Northwestern State vs. NLU (now ULM) in 1987.
NSU had just taken the lead after being down big in the first half and kicked off to NLU. My prediction was "82 yards in 8 seconds with no timeouts...it's impossible."
I was soon to learn that it was indeed possible....

I think it is both.
Pros: People generally appear more willing to help the needy and donate their time/money and less racism.
Cons: Education is going down the toilet and what some people consider entertainment - i.e. reality shows, etc. on TV - makes me scratch my head sometimes....

He is a good guy in my opinion. Went to see the Rangers/Yankees in Arlington with a big group a few years ago when he played for the Yanks.
