I will keep today a little brief- I have to figure out a place to upload all of this. So I want to upload a lot of pictures and not a lot of words.
Today indeed FLUID was the word of the day. We went to our work station prepared to do sheetrock and such in one area. Ended up we are in a totally different area (near where the November team went). We worked on Ms. Johnson and her dtr Ishesia’s home. She is ONE week from moving in! She is so excited. We laid down sticky tiles in her kitchen, did some trimwork, painted some furniture, sanded some other furniture, installed her dryer vent and struggled hanging some closet doors on her crooked closets. We also got to buy her a microwave- one of the last things she needed to get. (insert big surprised smile on Ms. Johnson’s face here…haha)
Tomorrow we will go back to Ms. Johnson’s and do some more work. We will also be painting. Fun thing about all this change of plans is… we are definitely more suited to the tasks at Ms. Johnson’s then we would have been at the other home. Jodi and Jamie helped put down sticky tile at the home for Cornerstone in the Community in January. We are really liking God’s plans.
I forgot to say in yesterday’s blogs- thank you SO MUCH for your prayers! It is because of you that we have been having such a great time.
Okay- so major issues finding internet connection. So I couldn’t upload until now. I am sorry for those of you who keep looking for it!
Today was full of more random house stuff. Ms. Johnson got to put up her first drapes in her dtr’s room! So her dtr’s room is pretty much 100% ready to live in! She just needs to move the rest of her clothes out of the FEMA trailer. She is so excited.
Wednesday is our last day. Folks were already talking about how time has flown and they aren’t ready to go home yet. We plan to get a bunch of things done to hopefully finish out the details so Ms. Johnson can move in this summer without too much else to do.
I wanted to take a minute to share about the day we passed out cokes, goodie bags to the police personnel and the homeless folks. I didn’t get a chance to look up the scripture on the card my prayer warrior gave me for Sunday. When I got back to the room afterwards it was the first thing I looked up- “They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of you holy servant Jesus.” Acts 4:28-30 Pretty fitting to the day and all of the team nodded as I read it to them last night during devotion time.
I continue to see how God is planning things out for us even before we know it. I have heard several times “I wonder what we would be doing at the other house right now. Probably not enjoying it quite as much since I can’t do sheetrock…” We are so thankful to the Lord for HIS PLANS for us! Thank you again for your prayers!
