Today was the worst day of fog we have experienced in Kentucky. It has been improving as we get on the main highway to Middlesboro but today it was really foggy all the way to the church. Very thankful for safe travel.
Two other couples are staying in Pineville at Clear Creek so Anne and Debra have been driving those ladies over every morning too. The early morning wake ups have us all pretty tired. The ladies did their usual routine of cooking three meals each day. We prepare a hearty breakfast, a lighter lunch and then a heavy supper. Tonight’s supper was roast beef, potatoes and carrots, green beans, broccoli salad and pecan pie. We have eaten way too much this week.
Out at the job site, the roof is now about ¾ complete. They may be very close to complete by tomorrow afternoon. The framing is coming right along. They ran into problems today due to plumbers installing some bathroom pipes in the wrong place. They had to move two walls to work around the problem. Ray, our construction supervisor, figured out a work around but it took some time. Max always learns a lot working with Ray. The build is going well overall.
Each year Ray brings gifts to give to the team members and they are wrapped and numbered. Tonight we drew numbers to see what we got. Max got a set of screwdrivers and Anne got some nice microfiber towels. Also, Pastor Mark from New Heights brought us Chick-Fil-A milkshakes. It was a fun night. Thanks, Ray and Mark.
It has again this year been a wonderful mission trip with Constructors for Christ. We think it has been the best project we have worked with Constructors. Already looking forward to next year.
