We had our huge work party last night to clean up and clean out our “Extreme Makeover” home. Somewhere around 150 people showed up to work on the Augment Project. I thought it was amazing to see so many people from so many different backgrounds working together. I love doing ministry for others and last night we went out and “did church.” My favorite part was circling up, holding hands and asking God to bless that home.
We officially got the lot cleaned, the trees trimmed, the house gutted and now we’re ready to go to work making the house look new. The first work teams should start this week. Soon we’ll be needing people who can hang sheetrock, ceiling, do handyman work, paint, etc.
Here’s a few pictures from last night’s work party…
The Augment Project – 2010 (we added the “2010” because we may have to do another one of these next year.
Since Vickie will be receiving the house when it’s done, she was the first to get to do demolition.
A big group of ladies fed everyone hotdogs. A BIG thanks to United for donating all the food and drinks.
Clean up took LOTS of man (and woman) power.
A big thanks to T&J Willis Equipment for helping with the clean up.
