Back to Work & Happy New Year

5.31     After a nice two week Christmas and New Year holiday we are back to work in NJ. David and Kathy Fuss joined us for a week to help coordinate operations and frame Barbara’s home.  Rick (our carpenter angel from Conn.) joined us until we get Barbara’s home framed and shingled. We had a great group of high school seniors from Statesville Christian School, in Statesville, NC. Since they were here from Thurs. to Wed. we had two feeding teams. We didn’t get a picture of the Reg 8 Feeding Team but they did a great job for the first part of the week and Dale Martin for the second half of the week. Some of the girls were lucky enough to do some inside work painting at the Gross home.1.14     It has been cold and windy.  However work has moved right along on Barbara Hastings home.  The youth have nailed hurricane straps, shoveled sand and moved lots of timber up to the main floor for us.  Rick is amazing.  He will gladly tell you he loves carpentry.  Paul, Greg and Mark (locals) have also been a great help.  FYI – that is snow you see. Rick works rain, snow, cold and wind and loves every minute GOD lets him build.  For everyone that knows how Billy likes to work – he has met his match (and then some).
