Today was another sunny, humid day. The high was only 85 and we had a little breeze part of the day so not quite as bad as last week but the humidity was still 100% this morning. It’s only 77% right now. We had a good deal of rain last night but so far no rain today. They are predicting rain from the subtropical storm to come in tomorrow and Tuesday but they are now saying it won’t be as bad as they were originally thinking and it’s going further east.
The team went to Sunday School today at 10:00, the same class we visited in September. Again they were very welcoming and a good class. Now they are studying the book, The Thirteen Apostles by J. Ellsworth Kalas. Today’s study was on Philip, the Deliberate. Interestingly, Kalas was Carol’s and Dave’s former pastor. We then went to worship, another good service. This congregation has been so good to the NOMADS. We really appreciate them.
This afternoon we joined Dave and Carol under the pavilion to share lunch and spent some time just visiting. We then had to get ready for our team meeting. Phil came in early afternoon and then later our final couple for this week, Wayne and Debbi arrived. It was nice to get to know these three new team members. This is Wayne and Debbi’s first NOMADS project. Welcome to NOMADS.
Team meeting ran a little longer than we expected but it was a good time of sharing and getting to know each other. Phil was not able to bring his RV this time and is staying at the R3SM volunteer house where we have been eating lunch each day, just about 5 minutes from our job site. We have decided we will leave here about 7:30 in the morning and go the R3SM for devotion so Phil will not have to drive all the way to Oak Grove and then drive back across town after devotion. We will see how that works. Really think this is going to be a very good team and looking forward to getting James back in his house.
