Victoria County, TX – Weekly Report – November 24, 2017

December 4, 2017

This week we welcomed three-year-long volunteers: Stefi and Henri Dick from Hamburg, Germany, and Dennis Lehmann from North Dakota. Together with our five weekly volunteers from Greenville University in Illinois, they took advantage of the great weather conditions and were able to complete the shingling of Tammy Cullpepper’s home in Bloomington. A few finishing details will be needed next week to complete the task. We also tarped the roof of a trailer home and began to paint some Sunday School rooms for our hosts at First Baptist Church in Bloomington.

We have been overwhelmed with the community support of our currently smaller group as we are working to make this space ready to accept a much larger team of volunteers after Christmas. Building plans for additional dorm rooms have been reviewed, and we will start construction next week to convert this space into a home away from home for the New Year.
