Bring on the cases

Ms Ollie is complete with new top soil and grass that should sprout easily with all the rain we had over the weekend.

Many, many thanks to Pastor Lavoy for the donation and spreading of the top soil!!!

Today started as do all Monday mornings, with our meeting where all the relief agencies meet at the round table to discuss who needs help and what we can do to get them that help. This morning we had more clients presented than have been in a very long time. This is a good thing. It means the people are being reached, especially the ones who had sort of "fallen between the cracks" and help should be coming to them. Each case must be presented with full information of what has been done and what still needs to be done. It's amazing at what still needs to be done and how some haven't even been able to begin any forward steps! I know it might seem like that is impossible to you but if you were here you would realize that nothing is impossible.

Monty has spent his day with his chain saw. A new build is finishing up where trees had to be removed to even place the house. Those trees have been piled up for awhile and needed to be removed. He took care of that today and will now head to the chiropractor to get things adjusted back into place. Handling heavy logs can take a toll but he enjoyed every minute of being outside and doing some hands-on work.

I have been working client cases and finishing the photo album for Ms Ollie. I promised her I would put one together for her since she missed everything that went on during the week of the building of her home. As I went back through all the photos and tried to select the ones that would tell the story it brought back the memories. Telling the entire story in photos is impossible but atleast with these I selected she will be able to see most of it and realize all the work -- and all the love -- that went into her home!

We start tomorrow with yet another home visit!

Until then . . . Susan and Monty
