All the way from Canada

We've had volunteers from all over the United States and this morning we welcomed a group of 8 all the way from Canada -- and some of them even drove!!! Hearts of service know no boundaries! And they will be with us for the next 2 weeks.

Along with our Canadians we continue to be blessed with Monroe and the Amish community who also come from all different areas of our great nation.

And George with his groups from all over are starting their last week with us.

Monty had some truck issues to tend to early this morning so he joined us at orientation a bit later. With the blessing of a local welder the issues may be resolved soon?

Our teams were up and ready to go this morning. The Canadians who are staying at the Presbyterian camp worked at Pastor Bob's church all day. Seems the flooring that was used in the rebuilding of the church was defective. It has needed to be removed for months now and today was the day. The team got started and by the end of the day had all the flooring removed, the floors cleaned with fans blowing to dry out the moisture in preparation for the new flooring coming later. It should be a nice surprise for Pastor Bob when he returns from his trip to Vietnam. Thanks team!

Our Amish group has spread out between the continuing transformation taking place at Teresa's, working inside at Mel and Billie's and starting the roofing process at Rosaland's. It was a day where Monroe might have met himself coming and going! Teresa's is looking fabulous and I couldn't believe it when I looked at the back -- utterly amazing.

And George's team returned for their last week of working at Brian and Carol's. The walls are really looking good and with the plumbing complete they are making great progress. Should be a great week for them and we assured them that another team will follow in their footsteps next week to continue the work.

This week is bound to be another one of great blessings. Deliveries of materials are scheduled throughout the week which means many changes and improvements come along for the ride.

Be sure and stay tuned as I will do my best to keep you updated daily!

Until next time . . . be blessed and receive a blessing! Susan and Monty
