Extreme Missions = Complete!

Our church is pretty much finished with the Extreme Missions project we did. We still have people coming to redo the roofing but the inside is finished. It was such a wonderful experience!  My church really pulled together to remodel a house in our community.  The family was gracious enough to let us come in and work for a full week.  People were there working on some days as early as 6 a.m. and some people stayed until after 9 p.m.  We did everything from removing all the trash in the home to completely redoing a bathroom.  We had a lot of challenges throughout the week like when when the countertop came undone and we had to completely redo the countertop on the island in the kitchen.  But in the end we finished remodeling the house and the family is very happy to have a like new home!  It really showed that no matter what your talent is there is some way that you can help out people.  Those who couldn't do labor helped provide meals for those working.  Even children came and helped out in some way.  I'm looking forward to doing this again.
