It was another beautiful week on Grand Isle. The weather has been really nice for our outside work with no rain. It would seem the plants would be needing some water by now but everything still looks good.
With Herman and Levina and Jack and Beth joining us last Saturday, and Sara, Ken and Michele staying with us for one more week, we had a good team with big plans for the week. Most of the crew worked at Chris’s house for the entire week with Ken and Michele taking a little time to return to finish up Denise’s house. We set up the saw horses to continue to paint the siding boards and completed the first bundle – finally. We will continue to put a second coat as needed and touch up the pieces that get a little scratched up in the installation process. With the use of ladders, scaffolding and the lift, and the entire team, we completed the siding installation on one side of the house by quitting time on Thursday. We also began the siding on the front. We still need to install house wrap on the upper part of two other walls. All the lower windows have been trimmed out with only the upper windows on the front and one side still in need of trim. There was also a good bit of caulking completed this week. We were all tired when the team sat down for dinner Thursday evening, but we were also happy that Chris’s house is looking better each day.
We were honored this week to present two families with their Bible signed by our NOMADS members. The visits with the homeowners, listening to their stories, and praying with them is always such a special time. Please join us in remembering these precious people in prayer. They have been through so much and have scars that still need to heal.
Friday morning we had to say good bye to our entire team. It’s unusual for us to have our entire team leave the same day. However, we have some good friends and great NOMADS coming in to join us for next week.
Please continue to pray for the safety of our team as we continue to work on higher sections of the house and we will give you another update next week.
