Just arrived with two of the newest SmartBenches for the Sheds of Hope build starting Monday, 9/11. We set up the work site today, and then the pre-cut for the Dallas Sheds of Hope build got under way.
What a week it has been! Last Sunday, Pastor Mark Davis made an announcement for the upcoming Sheds of Hope build for the Houston area. The deacons have set a goal of building 12 sheds starting 9/11 and ending 9/16. They wanted to reach out to other churches in the area so that they could be involved as well. PCPC put a sign-up link on their web site, and we had to close the sign-up form on Friday, 9/8. In just six days, we had 66 volunteers representing 13 different churches and groups. What an outpouring of mercy and love!
We are thankful to have the use of a great worksite for the build – Davis Hawn Lumber Company in Dallas. The pre-cut today went well, and things are looking great for our first volunteers to arrive at 9 am on Monday, 9/11. We are going to operate two shifts: 9 to noon. There will be a lunch break for those staying all day. The afternoon shift will be from 1 to 4pm.
Take a look at this short video as we finished cutting the end rafters for the twelve sheds. We need four rafters for every shed.
