Our team this week was eight guys from Florence Baptist, Forest City, NC. They split up into two groups. Josh joined four of the guys to do roofing. They removed four layers of old shingles and then installed new roofs on two homes – Ed & Teddy – Ed was able to also help the guys with both roofs. Both roofs had the challenge of not being able to get the trailer along side so most of the old shingles fell on the tarps and then had to be picked up. The other four guys finished a tear out for Vinnie and then moved to the Gross house to continue with sheet rock hanging. Tim, Paul and Chris worked on the ceiling rock.
After months of waiting we were finally able to start on Barbara’s house this week. The first two pictures are Barbara’s damaged home before and after it was torn down last fall. Picture three is Barbara helping level sand and digging where footers were going. Billy, Tim and Paul helped Randy dig Barbara’s footings on Wednesday. It passed inspection on Friday morning and on Saturday morning we met again and poured the footing. Randy likes to set his first course of blocks into the footing cement so that was done by mid-day. Randy starts laying block on Tuesday.
Along with starting Barbara’s new build we have received four additional request for help this week. Yes it has been two years but there is still a lot of primary homes which have not been rebuilt yet. Please come and join us as we continue to help rebuild the area and share GOD’s love.
