Another day has passed, and everyone is still working hard, with a positive attitude. Here is one of the houses we worked on today.
There are four of them together that are being finished in Bonita Springs. This was taken as we finished up work today. It was a bit contentious this morning, as there were several contractors, and multiple Habitat groups there working. The site manager gave the other groups the day off, so we could get into the houses and get our work done.
Our group has been praised by Pat, the construction manager we worked with yesterday. I spoke with the Habitat site coordinator today and was told that Pat asked if we could spend the rest of our time here in FL working with him! He said that the PTA group was one of the easiest, and best group of students he had worked with in a long time. In fact, he thought we were from Andrews University, where Vern is based. He was surprised that the students are high school seniors!
Again, another testament to the Christian influence from PTA and parents in these young lives!
Another of the four houses we worked on today. These are the same houses we worked on Tuesday. Learning how to hang mini-blinds.
Painting the garage floors, but not after creating a large “Class of 2016” in the middle of each!
Add some trim, and the garage is done!!!
Dinner this evening was at Two Meatballs In The Kitchen restaurant in Ft Myers. A local Italian restaurant frequented by the over 70 crowd. Our host and hostess for the evening are relatives of Vern, and they picked up the tab for everyone. We thanked them profusely. They are regulars in the restaurant, even though they are not in the over 70 crowd, so our service far exceeded our expectations.
Tomorrow is a day off so we will go to Ft Myers beach. Sabbath afternoon we will visit the Wildlife Sanctuary, and on Sunday, off to Sanibel Island. Apparently, it is a good place to look for shark’s teeth (on the beach, of course!)
