Many of you know the story. Many of you have seen the story on my blog. Andrew Smith, a boy in our church that I used to babysit, lost his legs in the explosion from a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. We have all cried, prayed, watched God work miracles and prayed some more.
Steps2Hope, an organization in our community, has put together an incredible opportunity to build Andrew, and his wife, Tori, a home - in a week!
I woke up at 5:30 this morning and headed to the site to help with breakfast
You also realize how out-of-shape you are when you walk up this driveway from the food tent to the house about 30 times.
We took the kids to Papa and I went with Jason back to the site. I wanted to be where Jason was and I figured I could continue to serve food while he worked. We got to the site a little after 5:00 and they were still mudding the drywall, and even still hanging it in some places. You can't put up trim until mud is dry. They told him it would probably be closer to 10:00.
The delay was not that surprising, it just meant that Jason will be working the night shift. So, we ate dinner with the crowd, Jason took me home and then headed back. I'm sitting at home, exhausted and trying to blog...
Added later: Jason didn't get home until 4 AM. Unfortunately, he was not able to work on much trim, but he did work on the tongue-and-groove ceiling.
