Team picture first week Baton Rouge DR

Today we began our day with devotion at 7:30 which of course seemed really early due to the time change. Think we need to go to bed early tonight. We got a report on Cindy from Avis and Gary and learned that the truck and trailer were possibly totaled, but of course that will depend on what the insurance company has to say. Today Cindy salvaged as much as she could from both vehicles, and boxed it up. She tentatively plans to rent a U-Haul and drive back to PA. Her brother was flying down today to help her. Of course, we are all just thanking God for Cindy’s and her puppy’s safety. Both truck and trailer ended up on their side so things could have been much worse.

We headed to the job site at 8:00 and traffic was not too bad but it was still a full 30 minute drive. The team went right to work framing in the bedroom addition and removing the wheelchair ramp. At the end of the day we had the floor joists in place, the wheel chair ramp removed and the rebuild begun. Certainly accomplished more than our hosts thought we would get done on day one. Everyone worked well together, laughed a lot, and worked hard. Most importantly, everyone remained safe. It was a very good day.
