Today was another sunny and HOT day. It was really hot out on the concrete slab today. We didn’t have any of the scattered showers come over the job site so the crew got a whole hard day of work.
Yesterday we went to the current Hodge Baptist Church for worship. The congregation is so welcoming and excited about their new building being started. We understand they have been talking about building a new church for 20 years so some of their members have been waiting a long time to see the first wall go up. The worship service was very good with good music and a good message. Since it was Father’s day we decided to avoid the restaurants and had lunch at the motor home. After a relaxing afternoon our team meeting began at 6:00. The church joined us for a fellowship meal and time of devotion before we got down to the business of filling out all the necessary paperwork and hearing all the opening announcements.
Work today began at 6:00 am with a break for breakfast shortly after 7:00. Debra and Anne’s team was responsible for lunch. They didn’t have to do much work because there were had so many leftovers from last night’s dinner. It was a successful meal with lots of fresh watermelon, tomatoes and cantaloupe to go with the leftovers. Max and Randy and the rest of the crew worked very hard on the new church and by quitting time today a lot of the exterior walls were standing. Really exciting times for the church members.
