When fourteen willing workers have the materials needed to do the job…things HAPPEN! This is the first full week that all of us on the team have been working at Mr. Shun and Ms. Sheila’s house and already half of the house is sided, more than half of the rooms are painted and the laminate and tile work has begun.
It is interesting to watch the transformation of this house happening before our eyes! When I watch our people work, I am reminded of the show “Extreme Home Makeovers.” The ladies are busy painting, mixing new colors and moving on to the next area, adding more white paint to create still another new color. Never let it be said that MDS volunteers are stuck (or boring)! The men are busy using saws or any other tool that makes a lot of noise, but, they do get a lot of work done.
The weather has warmed up and I must say, I don’t hear any complaints. As I am writing this the door and the windows are open and the fan is running even though it is 7:30 p.m. It is so hard to believe that only a few weeks ago we were freeze-drying paint.
Our group is so blessed to have some really good singers in the group and so our morning devotional time is a highlight everyday. I am already dreading the time when these people leave, so, it has been suggested that possibly they could leave us some recorded music (so far I have not witnessed any recording sessions)!

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.
