Marianna, FL – Weekly Report – Oct 26-30, 2020

November 4, 2020

Marianna benefited from 12 volunteers from Davis County Indiana this week. Ten of them were young men with experience and skills in framing. Their leader regularly takes a group of young men to MDS sites to encourage them to embrace a life of services.

The group worked on two new house building projects and finished one repair job. On the repair job they replaced a deck and roof over the deck and some siding. On one new build they set roof trusses and finished roof sheathing; they framed side and front porches and passed the strapping inspection. On the other new build the exterior walls are set.

A highlight was hearing the group sing out of the Ausbund and some gospel songs as they gathered (by themselves) in the lounge.

Next week a crew of 14 will continue the framing on two projects and likely begin framing the third project

Overheard on the repair job site: “Let’s quick nail this before something else falls down.”
