A Day with a Fence

Today, Team Carla worked on a long stretch of fence. This fence creates a border for Cenikor, a local short-term rehab facility and will provide added security and privacy. The ladies worked on installing the cedar pickets which smelled amazing.

Meanwhile the guys worked on installing more stringers, which prepares the fence for pickets.

Below you can see the progression of our day…

The end of the day


Team Carl spent the day “detailing the car” so to speak. They are wrapping up the final touches on Adrienne’s home and hope to finish by Friday!  We were lucky to have Adrienne, her husband, John, and their grandson join the Samaritan’s Purse teams for dinner at basecamp and share a bit of their journey since Hurricane Harvey.

  1. How hard for all the families that have been displaced for so long. Love all that all of you doing to help them get back into their homes. Keep up the good work!

    I didn’t realize we could comment on the blog. Gary and Laura, great pic yesterday of the two proud workers showing off their gorgeous floor! Well done!

  2. Incredible work! Thank you al for sacrificing so much to serve in this way. The fence and kitchen especially look great! I will be praying that you can finish strong and have meaningful conversations to process it all.

  3. Great work, team! What awesome progress! Continuing to pray for you all, and for the homeowners you have the privilege of working alongside.

  4. Wow, everything looks so beautiful!! I loved the before and after of the fence. How awesome that you got to spend time with the family too. Praying for a continued GREAT trip!

  5. So awesome! Thanks for sharing and keeping us updated. Praying for your team daily.

  6. Hey Team-Way to go! It’s so great to see all of your shiny, happy faces in the photos and see the physical projects been accomplished. I know there’s also important unseen spiritual, relational and emotional work that God’s doing in you and in the homeowners! P.S. I can’t get “bodacious bbq” out of my head from earlier blog posts-it’s been dogging me. I’d ask you to bring some back but that would be gross, and you have more important things to do. I’ll continue to pray for open hearts, strong bonds and amazing faith for all involved.

  7. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; enjoying one moment at a time accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Reinhold Niebuhr all y’all loved, christine

  8. Y’all are amazing! I would write more, but I don’t need to elaborate – Y’all are just simply amazing.
