It has been a very busy week at 15 Foster Road as our electricians, telephone technicians, and plumbers made some good progress. Water service is now restored to the building and insulation will be going up in the exterior walls in the very near future.
This week one of my highlights was giving oversight to one of our guest work teams from Moss Point, Mississippi. This crew of 14 came from Safe Harbor Methodist Church only a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico. The church and homes of this team were all damaged by Hurricaine Katrina. They were so blessed by the Iowa teams helping them in their restoration that they wanted to come and help us out with our recovery. They were hosted by the Methodist Church in Williamsburg and spent almost four full days working at the church. They were working so fast this week that I felt a bit like a general contractor trying to keep them supplied and working on projects. All I can say is that there must be something to "southern hospitality" because these folks were so kind, caring and a lot of fun to work with.
Below are a few pictures from the week!
