It Was “Extreme”

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.

Kayla, Vickie & Marijon working hard to clean things up.

The house is gutted and ready to rebuild.

    The work you do for others & bring others to do for/through Christ will never cease to amaze me!

      Kandys … Thankfully it’s work that everyone is doing and helping out on. Everybody that has got on board has their own expertise. I’m horrible with finances, but we have a guy that’s a whiz doing that.

    This is awesome!! What a blessing this will be for Vickie & how wonderful it is to see people so willing to serve!! :)

    Trey – Do you have a contractor/builder helping who can make sure you leave the proper support for the roof/walls/ceilings, etc, and help plan the interior? Do you have an interior designer who is helping?

    Just wondering about the practicalities of it all, permits, licenses, etc, with the city/county/state, etc.

    Love what y’all are doing. Who is paying for all of the materials, etc. Is all of that being donated? If so, by whom?

    Being an attorney, all of these “legal” questions come to my mind. Just don’t want y’all to get in legal trouble, ya know. I’d hate for someone to have to come post bail for you to get you out of jail! ha!

    Many blessings to each of you today!

      Dee, to this point we’ve covered all those questions, including insurance it someone gets hurt working. But it’s good to know that you could represent me if I need it. We have some people generous enough to donate their time, labor and some of the supplies. :)

    So very cool. Thanks for sharing the pics. Your crew works faster than my crew! Of course, I’ve never had 150 people ripping things out for me!

  5. Joe Waldron says:

    I must say that was a ton of work in very little time. Looking back on being a part of the organized chaos was incredible. It did not even feel like work, it felt like FUN! Thanks to our Lord for placing innovative ideas like this on the hearts of leaders that can facilitate such a wonderful gift. MJ and I cannot wait for the next day at the Augment House.

  6. Greg England says:

    Impressive amount of work your team accomplished. I love those kinds of ministry projects!

  7. Su says:

    That’s brilliant. Looking forward to more pictures!

  8. Linda Willis says:

    This is amazing! Can’t wait to see the process! Thanks for sharing!

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
