Work Has Started!

The weekend was devoted to setting up, getting organized and meeting the rest of the team. The church has a large space and we are "camping at the back of the church. The area has electrical service, water service, and sewage, so the living arrangements are OK.

As you can see we have a very pleasant area for out stay. Greta loves the place because I can tie her to a tree and she can watch the happenings. She is also happy because there are three more dogs for her to challenge. Restaurants, grocery stores, and other supplies are close by as well. There are several fresh fruit and vegetable markets close by so we have plenty of fresh fruits to eat. (Yes, Linda is making me eat healthy!)

The team consists of members from Oklahoma, Florida, Indiana, and Wisconsin.

The work assignments have been given out and projects have been started. I am working on remodeling the office space in the Church. This has included removing some walls, carrying out the debris, framing new walls, hanging sheetrock, framing in windows and doors. Hopefully by the end of the week, this part of the project will be completed and we can move on to another activity. After two days of work the area looks much different.

Linda has been busy as well. She has worked on the team that has cleaned some of the classrooms, worked on cleaning and organizing the kitchen, and doing her favorite jobs...painting!

We have thought about the current conditions in Wisconsin and recognize the weather has created some hardships for many people. Our prayers are the adverse weather will subside soon, and life will return to normal. Linda and I can not complain, we have had one day at 45, but the rest of the time it has been in the 60's and 70's....very nice. 

The team has planned an Wisconsin night tomorrow night...cheese, brats, and sausage. Some of us plan on doing a little fishing this weekend.
