How do I set up my silverlight app to pull data from a sharepoint list based on user inputs?

I have a silverlight app that I have hosted on a SharePoint 2010 site. The application pulls data from various lists on the site according to user inputs. At first, everything works fine. However, once the user tries to pull the data again based on a new criteria (but using the same listcollection) I get the error below...

Webpage error details

Message: Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application The collection has not been initialized. It has not been requested or the request has not been executed. It may need to be explicitly requested.   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientObjectCollection`1.<System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<T>.GetEnumerator>d__0.MoveNext()
   at POSS.MainPage.BindGetProjectData()
Line: 1
Char: 1
Code: 0

I think it has to do with the fact that I'm using the same list collection over and over again depending on the subject area, but I don't know of another way to do it. Any ideas? I've attached some of my code. "GetThisProject()" method is called when the user choses a new project.

you need to make a call to context.Web.Retrieve(WebPropertyNames.Id,WebPropertyNames.Title) before calling the ExecuteQueryAsync.
