After five days of working on the roofing project, we drove our last nail and picked up the the last piece of shingle off the ground at 7:00 am this morning. Yesterday brought sunny skies and warmer temperatures that forced us off the roof again at about 1:00 pm. We went back to the job site at 6:00 pm on Friday evening to begin installing the roof caps. Dusk caught us with 10 feet of ridge capped left to be completed. It was decided that we would come back out early today and finish the job that we started.
This week has been a wonderful experience for all involved. God provided us an opportunity to help a family in need and we are humbled by the simple things of having a dry roof over our heads. We are grateful for Karen King and Kathy Price for spending time cooking all the wonderful meals. We are thankful for Dave Dailly, Rick McMahon, Kheang Teav, Norman Yerby, William Ameen, Thomas Ameen, Ana Drake and Cliff Farrar for all the hard work that was done each day. We are thankful for Lynn Furlong for doing our morning devotions. We are grateful for all the prayers and well wishes that have been sent our way from our Church friends. We are most grateful for the ability and strength provided us from our Father and savior Jesus Christ.
Asking any of the members about the work week and I am sure they we be able to sit and talk for hours about where each of us saw God this week.
In closing , Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.
