Wow, this was an incredible week. Had a good time with the Forward Edge team. We got a lot done. We got a good chunk done on the church. Floor is level and ready to have concrete poured. Outside wall is up. Center supports for the roof are done. The church will be done next week. This Sunday, we’ll channel our inner Paul and have church in a tent. It’ll be fun.
Yesterday, I ended up working over at Pastor Rodrigue’s house, as having so many people working in the church would have just been utter chaos. I got all of the Angel Food stuff sorted so it’s easier to move around. In case you were wondering, 9,000 lbs (that’s 4.5 tons, people!) of rice takes up a LOT of room. So does 4,000 bottles of cooking oil. I was exhausted at the end of the day. I also got Rodrigue (at the hotel) the microwave we had sent down for him. He was pretty excited about that.
Today was beach day for Forward Edge. It’s a day early from when I normally go, but as Spock said, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Plus, well, it’s the beach. I have really been enjoying body surfing. For those unaware, you wait for a big wave, then jump into it and let it carry you towards the shore. Way fun. Ok, everyone, until next time!
