Tired of Drywall Pictures?

Friday, September 11, 2020

Drywall mudding and finishing is all we did today and we figure y’all are probably tired of pictures of that. So here is a picture from our foggy morning walk. There are many,many acres of corn and soybeans growing in the fields around MMDC so that is what we see when we walk.

But if you really like watching drywall finishing, click on the picture below for a short video of us at work:

Remember the heinous attack that was perpetrated on our country 19 years ago today. And remember to pray for those who are still suffering from the effects of that evil act. And remember to pray for all law enforcement, other first responders (including 9-1-1 telecommunicators) and service members who place themselves in harm’s way for our safety and security.

Still Working on Drywall

Thursday, September 10, 2020

We have completed the drywall!! Well, really we have completed the installation of the drywall. Today we started the finishing process – the mudding and taping. For most of the guys we work with in NOMADS this is not their favorite part. It’s really not the favorite part of the three guys working here, but that’s what we all did today. It’s what we will all be doing probably for as long as we are here. We are really pleased with the progress we are making. We are very tired but it’s a good tired. We will continue tomorrow working to get everything first coated. Life is good!

Still Making Progress

Tuesday, September 8, 2020

Today was a very cloudy and we had several showers pass over.  Temperatures are now cooler.  Nice!

The four of us are continuing to work very hard to get the drywall installed for MMDC and we are making good progress.  It would be nice to install the final piece tomorrow.  May not happen but it would be nice.  Check back tomorrow and see.

Busy, Boring Weekend

Sunday, September 06, 2020

Unlike most NOMADS work weeks this time we only had a two day weekend. We spent most of it cooking our meals for the next week, working on NOMADS business and pulling maintenance on FRED. Like the title says – busy, boring weekend.  But it was great to see our best friends on our church’s YouTube stream today. Sure made us miss them.
