Day 3 | Mickey Skeens

What a wonderful day it was. God blessed us with a beautiful day. Clear skies and a very hot sun, my group went back to the church site. We took 2 side by sides with us today in case the roads were to muddy to get the truck up or down the mountain. Once there it was determined that the truck could make it. We were able to get the new header in for the roof support and also installed the support beams and concreted the floor. We finished the hurricane windows on one side of the church and continued to work on the front of the church framing up the new windows and preparing for the new concrete header for the outside wall support. In the afternoon we had our first day of VBS and what a turnout it was. We were told to plan for 100 kids per day and any over that would have to be turned away. That had to be the hardest part to watch kids not get to participate. We probably had 120 kids show up, and it went great. For the ones that got turned away they will have the opportunity to take part on Monday for the next day of VBS. God has truly blessed us these past couple day and everyone is doing great and working very hard. Looking forward to our church service tomorrow, it starts at 6:00 a.m. and then we have the rest of the day to rest or take a hike.
