Happy Fourth of July

Another productive day. Dan Prins, an elder from Peace who has already been working some at Lindora's joined us and brought much expertise and encouragement. In J.J.'s room, the drywall mud was sanded and re-mudded and re-sanded, primed and painted (i.e. we are finished with J.J.'s room)! Likewise, we have finished Ms. Lindora's master bedroom.

The working bathroom has been mudded, sanded and primed.

Lots of sanding!

Much mudding and sanding has been done in the master bathroom and kitchen.

After sanding one must vacuum

We added a dryer exhaust from the floor to the outside and then connected the dryer to the exhaust.

But the biggest things were things that God is doing. J.J. did not have to work today, so he spent the whole day helping us.

We had several God appointed conversations with him. God has answered our prayers for safety, patience and help. We got to meet Eddie Jones, the president of Jones County Coming Together in Unity. This group of folks is multi-denominational and is praying for revival and planning a week of services in August. God is breaking down barriers in Jones County.

The evening ended with a delicious Bojangles tailgate with folks from Village Chapel sharing how the experience of Hurricane Florence has changed them. Many talked about how they had lost everything but they saw the faithfulness and provision of God in the midst of that disaster.

Once it got dark we enjoyed a personal sparkler and fireworks show put on by Alex and Nathan. In the background, we were also treated to a "seen over the trees" firework show by the city of New Bern.

Tomorrow is our last day. We hope to get as far on priming and painting as possible, as well as hanging some ceiling molding. Then it will be back to the church for clean up, tool organization, packing up and heading back to Raleigh.
