It was a long day of travel. We started at church at 7am, left by 8:15, and arrived at FUMC-San Benito at 6:40. A quick trip to Wal-Mart while the brisket was warming for a few forgotten items and ice for the 4 water coolers we brought.
There is NO electricity at the work site. Tomorrow morning, we get to go see the work site and find out what we can accomplish in the 4 days we have planned to work. We are smaller than usual with only 14 people (more adults than youth this year), but with an attitude of servanthood we will be able to accomplish a lot this week.
Rusted hinge on the trailer. :-(

Today was a demolition day. We took down the nursery. It floods whenever it rains and critters get in all the time. Since we recycle and reuse everything here, we salvaged the metal roof and we spent time pulling nails from the used lumber so that it can be used to build benches.
Wes & Kevin went to Home Depot to order supplies to start rebuilding the nursery. Lori, Vicky, Rachel, Sarah, Brandy, and Jackson went with Larry to drop off the health kits in Brownsville and work on a PET for a man needs new wheels for his. Tony, Alec, Tracy, Rosie, Keaton, Jessie, and Jason did lots of odd jobs on the work site. When Wes & Kevin returned, work was done on the trailer so that it will have a door when we return to Garland.
