Just because it was the last day doesn’t mean we slept in. Nope. The ladies were still up at 4:45 and at Shiloh Church preparing breakfast at 6:00. We had a hard working team of cooks preparing meals this week. The meals were very good and their efforts were appreciated. It takes a lot of teamwork to feed 25 people three meals a day.

Some of the team members left right after breakfast. Max and Anne went back to the job site to say goodbyes and a big thank you to our excellent construction supervisor, Ray. We wanted to get some good last pictures but with the clouds and fog it was a little difficult.

Rain was predicted so we headed back to the campground to pack up Fred and make sure we had him back on hard surface before the rain started. We were concerned that we would have trouble getting out if the grass got wet and slick again. Our rig was a little heavy for the grassy sites. Fortunately the rain held off and we had no problems. We had a very nice stay at the Clear Creek Baptist Bible College. We really appreciate them allowing us to stay there. The remainder of the team worked until about noon and the next team will be arriving Saturday and Sunday. Praying they have safe travels and another productive week for New Heights Church.

We had an uneventful drive back to Alabama. We could definitely feel the difference in temperature when we got back to the mountain. Our mountain isn’t giving up summer just yet. The Kentucky mountains where definitely cooler. Oh well, fall will arrive in Alabama in a few more weeks. We have long lists of things to be done before we head to North Carolina to work hurricane rebuilding. The next two weeks will be very busy.
