Our First Day of Work - April 5, 2010

Imagine walking into a building that no one had touched since Hurricane Katrina - a snapshot in time of August 29, 2005. The water rushed in that day and left a permanent mark at approximately twelve feet. The water remained for weeks, and then left in its wake reminders of what once occupied the space. Office supplies were in the lockers, gym shoes were left by members until their next visit, the child care center had toys and baby clothes waiting, food was still in the refrigerator. Five years later, teens rushed in to restore life to a building that will soon be a church.

You guys are doing great. What a difference your making. However, the boys should leave their shirts on--kidding.
