Yes, children, your mother IS working, not just "standing around." She has learned more about hanging sheetrock than she ever wanted to - and is having fun in doing so!
The top 2 photos are continued efforts at Wendell and Sharon's home. It is really starting to come together. The team installed 2 more windows, is working on the laundry room and hanging sheetrock. The women are thrilled to be learning and the men seem to be equally thrilled to be teaching. Relationships --- what God told us this world is all about!
The bottom 2 photos are Virgil's. The teams have knicknamed each other and are having a blast! All of the ceilings are nearly done and by the end of the week they just might start with the taping and mudding. When a house starts taking shape like this it really looks like a house. The biggest thing about this half of the team and Virgil's is the ministry that is going on --- INSIDE the house --- between team members. It's amazing to watch the changes going on in each of them, the bonding, the learning, the teaching and the joy! It's true joy with both parts of the team, each working with their hearts and having the time of their lives!
Monty spent the morning loading and delivering more sheetrock to Virgil's place. Thank goodness for the strong backs and energy of those young men! He then spent the afternoon working on one of the doors here at the church. Due to his perfectionism this door is perfect --- and really does open and close and lock!
We were blessed to join the team in dinner this evening. It's always a special time where people get to know each other better, not to mention enjoy the southern cuisine.
Monty and I have a very special prayer request for tonight. Monty's step father has been very ill lately and is undergoing quite a few tests to hopefully find out why. He and his family would welcome your thoughts and prayers. His name is Tony and his mother is Judy. God is the all powerful God and with Him nothing is impossible. Thank you!
Until tomorrow .... Susan and Monty
