Surprise -- 2 Teams!

Usually when the phone rings at 9pm on a Sunday night I expect the worst. It's just part of being so many miles from children and grandchildren and parents and brothers and a 96 year old grandmother. Not the case last night!
The phone call was to let us know we would have a second team this week, one other than the North Carolina team we already expected. Great -- send them on! After a few phone calls back and forth we were blessed to welcome the "blue" team from Colorado!
Yes, they donned their blue "attire" and headed back underneath Hank and Cherie's mobile home to install the vapor barrier. Those donated blue "things" are priceless -- and one girl wore the knees clean through on hers! They all talked about how difficult it was for them to get her to come out from under the trailer! What a blessing they are, a true surprise gift from God sent directly for Hank and Cherie and their son Blake! Tomorrow they hope to get the trailer painted.
Our North Carolina team still is missing a member, their team leader. Seems his truck broke down in Mobile, Alabama. He thought the part would be ready this morning but that didn't happen so he rented a car, loaded as many tools as he could fit in the car and headed west. He should arrive late tonight and be ready to go tomorrow. He is our sheetrock man so he will be working inside while the others continue working on the outside of the home. You can see by the photos that bracing the existing soffit became quite the teamwork project. They did get it done and when Monty came home this evening one team member was still there -- and says he'll return very early tomorrow morning to get a head start! Another direct blessing from God! They brought 2 women who are doing nothing but cooking for this team and we are to join them one evening this week -- yea!!!
I just have a feeling that this is going to be a week where alot happens -- be sure and stay tuned as you won't want to miss any of it and things can happen quite quickly at times! God is moving and He waits for no one!!! Thanks God!!!
Until next time . . . be blessed. Susan and Monty
