Today was another sunny, HOT and humid day. Heat index over 100. The same is predicted for next week. The team went to church again today at Chestnut Street UMC, our host church. We again really enjoyed the service, sermon and the hospitality of the people. They were so warm and welcoming.
After church we again went to Pier 41 for lunch. Yep, pretty much the same as last Sunday. But hey – it was good last week. Today was no different. This week we also met the owner. Very nice gentleman who came by and visited with us twice. He knew we were here working in the community and was very appreciative. He shared some pictures of the flood and the area around the restaurant. The restaurant itself did not flood but was close to an area that did. He also shared pictures of I -95 many feet under water. It was obvious that there was still a lot of pain from the flood. After lunch it was back to the camp ground and time for some afternoon naps.
Team meeting was at our motor home at 6:00. It was a good time of getting to know each other, laughing and team building. We served our local watermelon. It sure is nice to have a residential refrigerator so we can chill watermelons. After taking care of routine team business, we reviewed the progress we made last week on Mary Elizabeth’s home and brought Dave and Rita up to date. We then detailed out our plan to get the downstairs apartment completed and move-in ready. We are looking forward to getting back to work tomorrow and seeing how much we can accomplish.
