Myrtle Beach, SC RV – Weekly Report – Feb 11-15, 2019

February 19, 2019

The crew continued work at Patrice’s home.  Throughout the week, time was spent on painting, installing baseboards and interior doors.  Plumbing was tested with success and a number of inspections took place.  On Thursday some of the crew started work on two new projects: Theresa’s home and Pablo’s home. The amount of destruction seen in this area from flooding is overwhelming.  Clean up took place at Theresa’s house and the floor needed leveling. At Pablo’s home, the crew installed insulation and worked on electrical issues.

On Sunday we attended the Calvary Bible Church in Socastee.  The music was beautiful as they had a mini orchestra with several violins, a cello and a baby grand piano.  After the service all the volunteers enjoyed a lunch together at a nearby restaurant.  On Friday we welcomed our new volunteers, Bev and Everett from Michigan.  Bev and Everett have served on many MDS projects throughout the United States and we are so very happy to have them join us for the next six weeks.  On Saturday evening we all met together in the office trailer for games and homemade ice cream made by Ruth and Ed.  It was a fun way to get to know each other better.  

We will be finishing up at Patrice’s house this week and look forward to a house blessing on Thursday.  We expect to have a productive week as we continue at the other two projects.
