1 Hour and 18 Minutes

It’s amazing how much can be accomplished in just 1 hour and 18 minutes. Thanks to the newly developed scaffolding, the fine-tuning of the pre-build process, and the careful assembly by volunteers at churches and at the Dallas warehouse, teams setting up Sheds of Hope have become more and more efficient. It doesn’t take long to deliver a blessing to a family, and share the smiles, stories and hugs that can bring the love of Christ a little closer to wounded people.

Teams from Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas have been going to Houston to help build Sheds of Hope since the fall of 2017. These teams leave Dallas on Thursday evening, build Sheds on Friday and Saturday getting back to Dallas Saturday evening. Teams can build 3 to 4 sheds depending on the weather and location of the builds.

During our last trip, we had one of our biggest challenges. Thankfully, the team was up to the task, setting up a Shed of Hope between a fence and the house with about 2″ to spare. These teams have a mind and heart to work. This one finished the job at about 8pm on Friday. It was their 3rd Shed that day.
