Praising God Through the Trials

I have been putting off updating the blog because of the disappointments of the week and I didn’t know how to express them without sounding whiney. There are so many worse things going on in the world these days and I have so much to be thankful for.  Pastor Todd keeps reminding us to praise God even in the storms so I just want to praise Him for the life we have and for the opportunity to serve Him daily. With that being said I will just give the facts from this week with no whining.Blog   We had no volunteer teams this week, and yes we had plenty of work to do.  Billy and Tim were finishing up Rick’s bathroom tile and Vicki and Ann were cleaning and doing painting touch up.  We thought we would have the house complete by the end of the week but that was not to be.  We had a huge rain storm Tuesday night that caused flood damage in Seaside Heights.  It rained so hard that even our camper leaked.  We were up at 1 AM mopping floors and putting out pans to catch the water.  When we went inside the church before breakfast we found that the bathrooms were flooded from water coming up out of the sewer lines.  We spent all morning cleaning that up.  After lunch Billy and Tim went to check on Rick and Nick’s houses.  Nick’s was ok but Rick’s brand new laminate flooring was ruined. It has now all been removed and we are replacing it with tile.  Progress was made at Nick’s on Saturday by installing his kitchen cabinets.

We have lots of openings for volunteers this fall so let us know when you would like to come.
