Thanks to a crew of seven from PA, some of the flood victims of Minot saw wonderful progress on their homes this week.
At Miss Melodie’s house they started with caulking around doors and windows, then house wrap and starter strip and flashing. By the end of the week the siding was finished and the rear landing, stairs and railing were almost complete.
At Mr. Eugene’s house the tub surround was glued, subfloor screwed down and casing painted. The fresh muffins and juice provided by Mrs. Jean were definitely appreciated.
At Mr. Gary and Mrs. Anna’s they ran a range cable, doorbell wire and did wiring touch ups. It is so great to have electricians when there is so much wiring to be done! The interior doors were hung and some more casing painted.
At Mr. Don’s a service panel was put in, electrical boxes were installed and most of the wiring was run.
At Ms. Joyce and Ms. Vivian’s the underlay was put down, some trim painted and the shelves were finished.
The bunk beds at The Bible Fellowship Church were reworked – lowered the top bunk to give some head room, and braced the bunks to eliminate the hammock feel. Shower stall walls were framed and then given two coats of paint. The shower floors and the ‘mud room’ floor were also painted. This site was like a beehive all week as the cooks moved all the kitchen supplies to new project site and the office was moved on the weekend. The tool trailer was moved to the non-concrete part of the parking lot and put on wood pads to give more parking space for the congregation and guests who were welcomed Easter Sunday for the first service since July of 2011. Resurrection Sunday had a special meaning for the people at Bible Fellowship Church.
MDS long termers Art and Edna, Erv, Bill, and Dave and Anna, were blessed to attend the service.
MDS volunteers are known for repairing and rebuilding homes damaged by disasters. But it takes more than construction skills to serve with MDS. During the time that you serve as a volunteer, you will learn that MDS also restores lives.
Your contribution will help to connect volunteers with disaster survivors who need assistance on their path to recovery. MDS depends on the support of people who believe that disaster response is an important part of helping those who are in need.
