Crew 5 - Return trip part 1

We began our day very early this morning with breakfast
 at the center before hitting the road at 8:00 am.  
Many of the teens spent the ride from Jonesville, VA 
to Carlisle, PA catching up on sleep, 
summer reading and/or journaling.  
We also spent some time as a crew reflecting on the week.  
We hope that our crew took the time to check 
in with their parents along the way as well.

We have settled in at our host, St. Patrick's Parish, 
for the evening and have had dinner....

Bittersweet

Bittersweet.
As we were heading over to finish up at Bruce's house
this morning that is the word that came to mind.
We completed the porch and painted all the spindles and around the windows.
We were treated to pizza for lunch by Bruce.
He was so proud to thank us in this manner.
We bought him a hanging plant, a new sledgehammer,
fishing lures, a t-shirt for his grandson, new chairs for his new porch
and a wind chime with a hanging cross. We hit him a card...

Day 5 - Jim and Mary's crew

Crew 5 finished up at our work site today.  
Most of the day was spent trying to tie up loose ends.  
We got a lot accomplished this week but I think 
we all wish we could have accomplished more.

For the first time this week we really got rained on.  
It only lasted for about 20 minutes but it rained buckets.  
Thankfully the home we were working on had a nice covered 
porch where we could wait it out.

The kids were great again and we couldn't 
have been prouder of them and the...

Crew 2 - Day 4

We arrived at Dave's along with Crew 6 
and there was a real sense or urgency as 
we only had 2 days left and there was still 
so much to get done.  Crew 6 got busy on the 
hand-railings for the ramp and Crew 2 was back 
in the trailer breaking out the paint.  Tim, 
having mastered the art of roofing during the 
first three days, was assigned to roof the front porch.  
A prior ASP team had built a new porch off the 
front of the trailer, but they did not have time 
to roof it. Cam...

Crew 2 - Day 4

Image
Yesterday was day 4 for Crew 2.
It started out with us finishing the living room
ceiling for Dave and by putting up a
new ceiling in Dave's guest bedroom. 
 
The best moment of the day was when
Dave agreed to come to the picnic ASP has for all the
family's they are helping. With crew 6 finishing up
most of the ramp we were able to bring Dave
out of his house for the first time in 2 years!!
Seeing the joy on Dave's face was a feeling
I c...

Crew 4 - day 4

Image
Today was by far 
the best day we 
have had. 
We arrived on site and 
Bruce had surprised us by 
finishing the decking we 
started yesterday. 
He greeted us with a HUGE 
smile and was so proud of himself.
We moved on to ripping up the 
old lattice and 
putting in new spindles. 
We had some scrap wood 
and the kids made crosses. 
They asked Bruce if he 
would like one and here he 
is putting it in his garden. 
We could not have asked 
for a better day.

Crew 5 - day 4

What a productive day Crew 5 had today.  
Jim and I were so impressed with the hard work we 
saw from each member of the team.  Every day they amaze 
us with their positive, can-do attitudes.

A different member of the crew has led us in prayer 
each morning before we start work.  It has been 
incredible to hear them speak from their hearts and 
ask The Lord to guide us in our work.

They continue to become more and more comfortable 
with each other and the work they are doing ea...
