Power is on the way

Step by step, drip by drip, the electric at Mariano and Maria's gets closer to being complete -- the right way!

No, he didn't just get out of the pool (there isn't a pool anywhere near us) - that is sweat from rewiring, rebuilding outlet boxes and everything else that goes in with rewiring an entire house. Mariano once again was on the wrong end of the saw and by the time this is complete he will know every square inch of his home.

Glen, the electrician returned this morning - a wonderful thing! He is doing a fantastic job and I think having a good time while working!

I made my usual couple of trips to Lowes to get materials as they were needed. All I need to do is call in my needs as I'm heading that direction and they have it all ready for me as I pull into the lot. It's service that like that helps speed up the jobs and keeps the guys from having to wait.

Mariano and Maria were planning on putting on the last coat of poly on their kitchen cabinets this evening - after all the dust settled down. I wonder when they sleep as it seems they work 24 hours a day.

We did get some great news this morning. A gentleman, Glen (another Glen) is heading up a program where he will bring in skilled labor and rebuild aproximately 30 homes in 30 days. All we have to do is have the funding and paperwork in place. Today we heard that 3 of our homes will be in that program!! Paul and Linda, Vicky and Walter will have their homes rebuilt in quick order! What an amazing blessing and I have no doubt that God will be showing up big time! They hope to begin sometime around the first of August, if everything is in order.

Be sure to stay tuned.

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