Getting Ready to Get Started

Sunday, December 08, 2019

Morning Worship at Big Pine UMCToday started with an inspirational – and unconventional – morning worship at our host church, Big Pine United Methodist Church.  It was unusual for us that we had not heard a single song in the order of worship. After the service the church hosts a light lunch which was very good and very welcomed.

This afternoon Gene and Carolyn, our team leaders, drove us around to see the houses we will be working on this week. Both houses have had a lot of work done by the homeowners, contractors, other volunteers and NOMADS. It looks like we will spend the week finishing drywall, painting and a lot of odds and ends.

They then drove us to Key West to Kermit’s Key Lime Shoppe so Carolyn could get some Chocolate Dipped Key Lime Pie on a Stick to take home to her daughter when they leave next weekend.  Of course, we had to try it, too.

This evening Gene and Carolyn hosted the team meeting in their RV because another group was using the church. They even provided us with delicious grilled burgers and key lime pie. We are looking forward to getting back on our purpose.

  1. Glad you guys are enjoying all that the Keys have to offer! Did you know that the Keys left the USA over some dispute and issued their own currency and had a border crossing?
