Yes, we sadly said goodbye to 2 teams today. Greg and Pam left for South Dakota around noon. Before leaving they headed to the vet with Cooper. It seems he has a sore throat, swollen glands and was attacked by the gnats with sharks teeth and had an all around bad night! The vet ended up giving him 6 shots and meds so hopefully when they arrive home he will be feeling better! They have been here for a month and needless to say we will miss them terribly! We know they will be back as soon as they can. God be with them as they travel such a long distance home!
The Tennessee team was on the road around 4pm. They had planned to head out earlier but really wanted to continue working to get a few more things done. They did a fantastic job finishing and priming Jim and Cindy's home. It is nearly ready for paint. The team learned so much and felt as though they could conquer the world when they left. They all agreed Diane is quite the teacher! :) The rest of them were at the Spanish Village and Dane's and have done miracles! The 2 trailers at the village now have floors that will support them and walls and ceilings. The minor details! Dane's is looking great with its new white and yellow colors. We are so thankful to this team for coming out of their comfort zone and being such a wonderful blessing to these families. We know they are planning a return trip and that we will be seeing them again in New Orleans, probably July. May God also guard them as they travel home.
My mother and I did more visiting with Ms Faye today. She is getting more and more excited at the thought of being able to move in shortly. It should be only a couple more weeks and we will have the permit completed. After visiting with Mike in the hospital this evening he just might be released Thursday! He is doing great in physical therapy and is eager to learn and be mobile on his own. Faye is also learning how to be of a help to him when he does get home. It does my heart so good to see him in less pain, smiling and feeling better than I probably have ever seen him. He was laughing as we shared stories of their childhood! We are family, the kind of family that God plans, not people!
My mother and I also had the opportunity to go and visit with Gladys. You will remember that we rebuilt her home last year about this time. Gladys turned 94 years old last November and is as good as ever. She was just as excited to see us as we were to see her. Her house looks wonderful and she still talks about how beautiful it is!
Once again, family planned by God!
Thank you for becoming a part of our family by continuing to hold us up in prayer.
Until tomorrow ... Susan and Monty
