Week One

Team One came from Fairbury, Columbus, Princeville, Bradford, Forrest, Tremont, Detroit, Mediapolis, Eureka, Washington, Burlington and Congerville.

Team one leaves Fairbury bringing the remainder of the 22 vehicle and 12 trailer fleet.

Welcoming committee.. great joy to see them all pull in safely.

Ms.Cynthia home was taken down, lot surveyed and digging began. Quite a surprise to uncover & remove huge boulders before the footings could be poured.

Team work!


Ms Joyce had bought her own insulation to keep the cold air out of her sinking foundation. The sinking floor created refrigerator problems. Her house was taken down and digging will begin.

4 new roofs were completed. New front and rear entries were constructed.

Ms. Sandra had prayed for 3 years for help. When so much good happened in 3 weeks she was overwhelmed and asking God how she could pay it forward. 

Thankful that this first team had a team member surrender his heart to the Lord.

Painting doors and trim back at camp.

Mr. Robert was heating his home with the oven.  His roof was repaired and a heating sytem installed.  South Carolina homeowners are not prepared for the record breaking low temperatures, especially for 11 days in a row. 

Ms. Peggy loved visiting with the team during lunch and joined us for Wednesday church services.

The kitchen staff shared afternoon treats for the individual job sites.

A major remodel job was started in Columbia. Nasty crawl space work.

Ms. Lou Alice requested the team to sing Nothing but the Blood.

Ms. Lou Alice is so appreciative of her home being restored after a 2-year long wait of not being able to live there after the flood.

Team one enjoyed eating lunch with Ms. Cynthia.  This home they helped remodel in 2017.

Sharing after supper is always filled with laughter and good stories of everyone’s encounters from the day.
