This week a group of 10 volunteers from North Street Community Church in Pennsylvania joined us. There were three sets of family units, fathers and their children, even one grandfather. It was a fun week and great to see families working together.

The Noble house was insulated. The walls and ceiling were taped, sanded and primed. Ready for paint.

At the Shepherd house, there was insulating and sheetrock taping. Lots of sanding and almost ready for paint.

At the Little house, the roofing, soffit, siding, and caulking were finished. Insulation was nailed up under the house. The group did an awesome job nailing in cramped spaces! A ramp was built and was almost completed. The house received a thorough cleaning and everything was organized to make room for the drywall which will be delivered next week.

The Holbrook house finally got started with five volunteers from western Kentucky here for one day to lay the blocks. We are so grateful for their work and they were indeed an answer to prayer. After the blocks were layed, we core filled the block wall and dug holes and poured the concrete supports for the porch posts. The sill plate was put on and the rim joist was set. We will be framing next week.

On Wednesday evening Michael Shepherd joined us for supper and shared his experience with the flood. Phil and Rosie Swartzentruber, members of the Long-Term Recovery Team joined us as well.
