Welcome Lima, Ohio

They made it -- atleast part of the team. There will be additional team members coming mid week. Today we welcomed the first 4. They will be spending their week in Ms Lee's home. The gentleman with me in the photo is her pastor and the other gentleman is Marvin, the man behind this makeover/repair work for Ms Lee.

If you go back a couple of days you can read about Ms Lee's story and just why taking on this home is such an honor and a privilege. Her church made the decision they would do this for her -- no matter what! They stepped out in faith -- determined to help, to do whatever it takes! With this team coming in they are an answer to prayers. I can't wait to see the miracles take place as the week progresses.

We wrapped up our late afternoon by going to my parents' church and helping my mother with their Hot Meals program. Every Monday evening she plans a menu, organizes the people who will help and provides a good, hot meal to anyone who comes through the doors. In this city you can get one of these hot meals 7 evenings a week! It's a joy to go and help and by now we are getting to recognize certain people and have fun talking with them. They are always interested in what we are doing and what is happening with the flood relief in the city. And of course they all have learned to know what an amazing cook my mother is so they make sure and be there each Monday! What a blessing to the community!

Be sure and stay tuned this week -- whenever teams are here miracles are waiting to happen.

Until next time . . . Susan and Monty
