Hello Families and Fans,
We had an outstanding day today. Our home sites are full of wonderful families and challenging situations. All of our leaders have done an amazing job helping the teens come together and open up.
Tonight we had an amazing night of sharing and discussion. The teens opened up a out what they were feeling as they met their families and saw the condition of the homes they would be working on the next 5 days. The details shared were awesome. The adults were so impressed by our teens.
Our homes all provide a different challenge for our groups. Our names for the homes we are working on are Mr. Roger's, Magic Kingdom, Soul Full, O' Brother and Sundance. The responsibilities for each of these homes varies from roofing, kitchen & bathroom remodeling, vinyl siding, painting, building a handicap ramp, installing fixtures and much more.
Today was very eventful...starting with a VAN ending up in a ditch...long story but all is well. We then made incredible progress at all the sites. We enjoyed a praise and worship session with our friends from Alabama. It was inspiring to watch our teens get involved. Overall a tremendous day.
The gift of the Holy Spirit is present in all of the teens and leaders. It is clear that the grace of God is overflowing here in Jonesville.
Catch up again tomorrow! God bless!
