TN15 Day 2 Worksite Update:
We had a fantastic day! Got a ton of work done on the worksite! We cleared out a ton of trees, weeds, brush, and vines. We got a great start at rebuilding the deck on the front of the house. I am very proud of all of our students and leaders for their hard work and their positive, helpful attitudes on the worksite!
Today also was a great opportunity for us to connect deeper with the homeowner, Kelly. Through conversation with her today, we learned a lot more about her daily struggle. She is a single mother with a 2 and a half year old and a 7 month old. She bought this house 2 years ago, and it was a money pit. Since then, it has only gotten worse. She has tried to do a lot of work on it herself, but between being a mother and working 3 jobs it has been hard for her to make any progress and keep up with all of it. Tears were in her eyes today when she explained her circumstances to us. It was overwhelming to see the joy she is feeling because we are here to help her. She is so happy, relieved, and thankful that we are here to help her. Praise God that we have this opportunity to serve her and share the love of Christ with her!
Thank you for your continued prayers and support!
