One Body Once Again

8:00am we all gathered in the Baptist church, Methodist with Presbyterian with Amish. It was a sight to behold and one that had to have God smiling!
Our Amish brought the homeowner they are working with for the next few weeks, Teresa. She is their driver and we were happy to have her join us for our orientation. As we finished with prayer they all headed to Lowes to get their materials all lined up for delivery and then to the job where they are moving Teresa to one side of the house while they demo and rebuild the other side. Then they will move her to the new side and rebuild the last half. They have a really big job ahead of them but they were ready to go. The younger boys were teasing as we talked of my truck being in the shop they told about their "truck" that was one horse power - with 4 legs!!
Our PDA team was divided into two teams; one to Mel and Billie and one to Rosaland's. At Mel and Billie's they are working on some demo work of their own on the back of the house. You can see by the photos that they made great progress. At Rosaland's you can see the floor of the bathroom removed and preparation for new stud walls to be built.
Once again a week where we join forces, all with the same hearts -- to just help the people in any way we can.
Tomorrow more materials will be ordered and picked up and with the sun shining and the temps absolutely perfect it will be another day of blessings coming from every angle.
And I am happy to say my truck is now repaired; new back tires, new brakes with rotors and the "shakey" front end no longer shakes! But ouch -- the cost of repairs! But . . . we all do what we need to do to keep our vehicles running! And running it will be once again -- I average over 100 miles a day most days!!!!
Blessings to all of you and be sure and stay tuned this week as we have another team arriving Wednesday!
Until next time . . . be a blessing! Susan and Monty
