Today our team woke up around 7:00 again to nothing short of a wonderful breakfast prepared by Eileen. We had a breakfast casserole that had egg, ham, tater tots and cheese all together. It was wonderful! We also had toast, fruit and doughnuts. We headed back out to yesterday’s worksite around 8:45 and began working around 9:30. Kirk and Barry resumed work on the electrical wiring while Rick and Dan began work on the roof of the wrap around deck as well as finishing up some odds and ends of deck work left from the previous group. Amy, Marcia, Tina, Barb and Christina worked on interior walls in one of the bedrooms.
After a long and very diligent day of work we were able to complete some odds and ends of the deck, make good headway on the roof and electrical wiring, and the girls were able to complete the interior walls in one of the bedrooms. Prior to leaving Dave’s house, we walked down a little stretch of road on the property to visit a baptismal site that Dave had told us he made. It was very nice and he said he has used it quite a few times.
We left Dave’s house around 5:00 and headed back to Richwood. Rick and Tina stopped at a house here in Richwood that we worked at last September to adhere a couple boards to her house real quick while the rest of us stopped back at another house we had previously worked on. The house that the rest of the group stopped at belongs to a man named John whom we really enjoy visiting. If you go back through our group’s blog posts from our last two trips here, you can read all about John and his projects he has going on. He remembered who we were and showed us around his house! He told us he gets up early every day to work on the house.
After our visit with John, we came back to the church to meet Buck (our contact person here). We discussed with Buck what all we had accomplished and gave him a donation towards his group. After some fellowship with Buck some of our group went to a house nearby in Richwood to finish up some trim that needed to be done. The lady that lives in this house is a lady that our group did some cleaning for last time we were here. It was nice to visit her again and catch up on how she has been since we last saw her.
After the crew got back from completing the trim on her house, we all had supper together which was spaghetti and salad, made by Eileen. It was excellent! After supper we all had some fellowship together, devotion time and then went to bed around 10:30-11:00.
Today was a very productive day, thanks be to God!
