Raising the Roof...

Our guys well, and a few girls too, replaced the decking and fascia and roof of a house that was affected by the tornado back in 2007. It started out as a just a rip off and replace but once they discovered the rotting decking they had to replace that to be safe. One of our own youth, Sammy fell through the roof and and ended up with staples in his was ripped by a nail. He had quite an ER experience but I will just leave it at that. Hunter helped put the roof on. He had to overcome a few fears but he was willing to do it and came away with a sense of contribution. I think it did him good to work and sweat on someone else's behalf. He was working for Jesus. From what I understand it is quite a job that they undertook and completed in just 4 days. It was a big roof. There were many youth guys up there doing was needed to help. It was so nice to see them all working toward the same help out the family in need.
