Hump Day...? What hump day?

Usually when I travel with large groups we experience a "hump" day.
It is the day midweek that everyone moves a little slower, or arrives
a bit later or looks a little more tired. However,
on this trip there is NO SUCH day!

Our 3rd day of service found many groups adding final
touches to projects, taking BIG steps towards completing
the projects and embarking on new ones. Today
I found myself at a "tipping point". I knew coming to
Virginia was going to be...

Crew 2 - Day 3

It was Day 3 for Crew 2 today at Dave's.  High humidity
arrived along with very warm temperatures. After our morning prayer
on the front porch, Paula, James, Emily, Jacqui and I got to work
sanding the ceilings in the living room, while Tim and Phil returned
to the roof to finish that project once and for all. It really
came out great and they will take comfort in knowing that Dave
will be kept dry for the restof his life due to their efforts.
Crew 6 returne...

Crew 4 - day 3

Image
From Karin...
Today was by far the most 
physical day we have had.  Steve, 
Katie, Cassie and Jen worked on 
finishing the siding.  
Karin, Garrett, Alex and Michael 
finished ripping up the 
porch decking and got most of the new decking up. 
We worked 
side by side with Bruce learning a lot and having 
a lot of laughs. Bruce said he enjoyed listening to
 the teens talking. 
The 11 year old that lives in the house finally 
came out to 
meet us and ended up playing yard fri...

Crew 5 Wednesday update

Crew 5 may have had its most productive day yet today.
  We put up board, soffit and facia along most of the front
 of the house (which has the highest peak.). 
All of the teens were involved in measuring, cutting, climbing
 ladders and hammering nails.  It has been amazing to watch them grow in confidence as they develop new skills.

We had an opportunity to spend more time with our homeowner.  
She joined us for lunch and shared with us stories about
 her life and about the commun...

Crew 2 - Day 2

> Day 2 for Crew 2 at Dave's.  We hit the ground running today having already met the person we are helping this week. Crew 6 was back on site as well making steady progress on the handicap ramp that will make it possible for Dave to get over to the carport.  We were back inside continuing our work on sheet-rocking the living room ceiling and beginning the demolition of the bathroom ceiling.  After saying hello to Dave on the front porch, Paula and I walked around to the back of the traile...
