Coastal Bend, TX RV – Weekly Report – Mar 25-29, 2019

March 29, 2019

Jake and Agatha Falk from Manitoba, LuEtta and Weldon Friesen and John and Elaine Harley both from Indiana, Lisa and Paul Schamback from New York, Jim Showalter from Indiana, Dennis and Joanne Friesen from Manitoba, Audrey and Nevin Mast from Pennsylvania, and Wayne and Delores Yoder from Ohio had one more week to work together in the Coastal Bend area.

The house on Avenue F was completed and the final cleanup was done on Monday. The house blessing which scheduled for Tuesday was postponed. Since our group will not be here for the main ribbon cutting ceremony, we had our own house blessing on Thursday noon.

The work on Danforth Avenue included many things such as installing the remainder of the vinyl flooring, installing doors and trim, washing windows, cleaning the bathtub/showers, setting vanities in the bathrooms and miscellaneous things.  

On Avenue G, Dennis and Joanne worked on the deck and steps and were able to finish it. 

The local organization we worked with provided our last meal together as a way of showing their appreciation for our work.

Thursday evening the staff at Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group provided our evening meal for us at Stevie Lew’s BBQ as a means of expressing their appreciation for our services. It was a delicious meal enjoyed by all.

Completing our assignment brings a sense of accomplishment, but also a sense of sadness as we say goodbye to the new friends we have learned to know and worked with the past weeks and months.
