3/29/2019
Week Five Baton Rouge Disaster Rebuild Project Report   The week we said “see ya’ll later” to three couples including Max and Anne, Mark and Lisa and Gary and Nancy.  We were then blessed with the arrival of Bruce and Cindy but that is all so we were a somewhat smaller workforce but a mighty one nonetheless.  We had lunch at the City Café after church on Sunday. On Sunday night (actually Monday Morning at @ 2:00 AM) a group of high school students and their leaders from a private school in ...

Week Four Baton Rouge Disaster Relief Project Report This week we had three couples we had to hug and say “see you down the road”.

3/9/2019
Week Three, Baton Rouge LA 2019   Unusual for a disaster rebuild project, we had the same team for two weeks in a row.  We skipped the Sunday night meeting since we all went out to lunch after church, to Freddy’s for frozen custard and then home to rest.  Unfortunately the Louisiana crud was still attacking our team this week and we had more visits to the Urgent Care.  The good news is that as the week drew to a close, everyone seemed to be improving.    This week we continued finishing the ...

Week Two Baton Rouge, LA 2019   At the end of last week after the team completed the Oakline Drive home and made that Bible presentation, the team picked up another home on Baker Drive in Denham Springs, about 15 minutes from where the RV’s are parked.  It is a trailer that had been gutted and a lot of the drywall installed and some mudding done.  It’s nice that both the houses are pretty close.  No long drives fighting traffic.  This week we had one couple join the team, Lisa and Mark.  They ...
