Vacation Week for Us

7.5  We took a week off for vacation while Tim and Vickie kept things going. The rebuild/feeding/chaplaincy team came from Region 5.  The team had requested to do some ministry outreach as well as rebuilding.  They took on the challenge of contacting many of the home owners whom NCBM volunteers had helped over the past 20 months.  The report is the home owners are very happy for all the work done and materials supplied.  Some of the team did mold treatment, insulation and started hanging sheet rock.  Three team members did the cooking.  The Toms River Lions Club had asked to help buy some materials for home owners. Mel, the president with the Toms River Chapter came by to see the work and presented Tim with checks to help on two jobs.

We started off our vacation time at home.  Billy did a few jobs around the house and Ann worked one day at the Yellow Dog Bread Co. We were able to spend a few days with our son Josh. On Thursday we went to Lake Gaston.  Billy did more chores there.  Sorry, but he doesn’t know how to rest. Some of the family came up to join us on Saturday, including our grandchildren.  Matt forced Grandpa to ride him on the wave runner.  Great bonding time. Back to NJ on Sunday to start a very busy week.
