Pasadena blesses Rick

Pasadena is only about 45 minutes from here --and this team had never done anything like this before! As you can see by the smiles on their faces the heat index of 113 degrees didn't take away from the blessings they gave out and received in return!

They were here for 8am orientation and from there we took them to Rick's house. As I said the other day, this house still had furniture inside and the mold had taken over. This team of 8 jumped right in and started cleaning . . . and cleaning . . . and cleaning. We were amazed at how quickly they worked and how much they got done. By afternoon they were gutting the sheetrock and had the family room done and were moving into the bedroom!

Some of the ladies were in the out building that had been turned into a bedroom. They worked and hauled and hauled more and got 'er done!

We are so thankful to this team for their hearts of service and their willingness to come and do whatever needed done - and do it to the best of their ability - no matter what the weather! It is our hope that they will decide to return for another day!

Our electrician also made a trip to Mariano's to start preparations for his work on Monday. The house needs completely rewired and we will be getting the materials tomorrow so all will be ready for early Monday. They hope to begin very early as they will need to be in the attic -- not a place to be in this heat!

I am also happy to let you know that my Daddy is doing much better - thanks to all your prayers!

Until next time . . . be blessed. Susan and Monty
