Appalachia 2010 Update #5

We are finishing our mission trip to Appalachia and return home tomorrow (Saturday). It does not seem possible! All three rehab jobs were completed in the midst of a driving rain.

Today was, in a word, “HOT”. The weather index was well over 100 and real temps in the 100s. In spite of the heat God was at work. The three work crews expect to be done by lunch tomorrow.

For me the best part of this crew is that they invited Ethan in and he worked all day! He…
