Goodbye Indiana, Hello North Carolina

Hometown went home this morning - and left a big hole in our hearts! What an uplifting week for Monty and I and we thank all of them for everything they did! Our hope is that you all will return as soon as possible. And one thing we know -- it wasn't quite as warm when you got home as when you left here!! :)

We did have a few hours to get things arranged and take a break before our team from North Carolina arrived. There are 10 of them now with 4 more arriving Wednesday morning sometime. They are all very anxious to get to work. A few of them were in Slidell, Louisiana this time last year so they are "seasoned" to a certain extent. The others will be just that within a couple of days. The balance of this team swings more to women -- girl power at its finest! It will be a great week. They will be divided between Dane's and Rosemary's and by the end of the week both of these homes should be the next thing to done!

Monty got an update on our friend Joe at home. His mother is no better and is "hanging on" in his words. Once again, please continue your prayers for this entire family.

Mike was back in ER last night after I had already done the blog. His foot had started bleeding so they went back and they were going to rebandage it. I'm going on the no news is good news for today. I'm sure I'll see Faye at church in the morning. FYI to all who know her-----her birthday is this FRIDAY and she is quite excited! If you don't have her current address and would like it to send a card just give me a call and I'll be happy to share it with you. She would LOVE to hear from you!

Don't forget to thank God for all your blessings when you go to church tomorrow! He is amazing, isn't He.

Until tomorrow .... Susan and Monty
