Wow.

Almost 1100 volunteers will be on the Gulf Coast as a part of Eight Days of Hope this week. We come from 42 states – today, I met folks from New Hampshire, Virginia, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New York, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Indiana.  

After breakfast at 6:00 and some last minute instructions, we broke into teams to take the 150 projects.

A number of the folks from Hope (now 76 strong!) worked on what I’ll call “the demolition team.” Our job was destroying a house that had been…

1. Beaten by Katrina

2. Through a fire

3. Waterdamaged from the fire department.

Being quite good at destroying things, I found myself having a ball.

Oh, by the way, we completed 92 projects today! An additional 150 were added. We’ve got plenty to do!
