Last week, we were fortunate to host a work team from our hometown of Roanoke! It was an awesome week! The team worked very hard, along side of the Haitians to finish the largest roof this year.
The roof was for the school and church at LSM’s Cancer Redemption Project. Here are a few fun facts for the project….
17,230 linear ft of lumber used
1730 sq ft of plywood for gussets
330 – 12 ft pieces of roof tin (15,840 sq ft)
Approx 600 pounds of nails!!
Bumps, bruises, cuts, and bent nails -we lost count!
Most importantly, we believe God was glorified, and many children were blessed by the efforts made.
Here are before and after pics.
On Sunday, we had the priveledge of worshipping with the parents and children who live at the homes of hope, as well as touring their homes.
The ladies did a great job on the benches, and finished early! So, we took the opportunity to have a fun day of visiting the local market, touring and shopping at the domestic center, and having lunch at our house.
The last day was spent touring the hospital at Bonn Finn in the morning, followed by a drive to Port Salut for lunch and beach time.
There were lots of special times throughout the week. One of the best things, was that Bri’s best friend Elly came with the team. Bri and Elly were able to spend a lot of time together and reconnect. We were so blessed to be able to share our lives with those we love. We appreciate all the effort that was made, and all the gifts, hugs, and love that the Roanoke team brought with them.
