Weekly Team Report - Texas Disaster Rebuilding Nov. 2

11/1/2018
It is hard to believe that November has arrived.  After church last Sunday, we went to a park in downtown Corpus Christi where the homeless congregate to get a meal.  Odem First UMC brings books for the homeless to read and also some health and hygiene items.  Since the food was late, the people came over to get books.  We were impressed how many had a hunger for reading, how many books they took, and they talked about mysteries they enjoy reading.  The church also had children’s books.  It ...

10/21/2018
Week of Oct 15 - 18, 2018 Welcome to the land of clouds!  We have seen little, if any, of Mr. Sun this week.  Fortunately, we did not get the amount of rain that Houston got.  Monday morning we left the RV’s and it was 83 degrees and super humid.  Within an hour, the temperature dropped around 20 degrees!  We decided that we needed to go out for lunch on Tuesday because a hot meal would be more appreciated!  There is a cafe in Aransas Pass, 5 minutes from the house we are working on.  The food ...
