I think I speak for the entire group when I say that my heart is filled with great joy at being a part of making a HOME, not a house, for Max, his family and the children at the Hope House. Being able to make this trip has truly been a gift from God. Rex and Chad B rocked the house again (pun intended) by finishing the frames and hanging all of the dry wall for the ceilings. Chad W and Brain (with a little help from Rex and Chad B) were able to almost finish all of the dry wall for all of the rooms. The three walls started on Monday were completed by Mark, David and Lisa. By the way, yes means no in Ukrainian – to Sergi “The wall looks good?” Sergi to the group – shakes his head yes. “It’s o.k.?” Sergi to the group, “No.” Comic relief right? Highlights for the day were David accepting the offer of a haircut by one of the Ukrainian volunteers, affectionately known as Little Sergi. Will be sure to post before/after pictures soon. Looks pretty darn good if I do say so myself. A long way to go for a $5 cut! We were able to make a quick trip to Eagle Village to see the future site of the two three-story condominimum’s and the Hope House headquarters. After lamb stew, meat, and apple pies, Uri cracked the whip and sent us back to work. And it appears that after four days of hanging out at Ira’s house, her dog has finally gotten used to Mark and Brian’s smell. We did not have a single shoe missing after dinner this evening. Thanks again to everyone for the quick comments to our blog. It is nice to know that you are all keeping up with our progress (antics?). It has been a wonderful trip with lots accomplished and we are looking forward to seeing all on Sunday. Continue to keep us in your prayers for the 12 hour bus ride home, and the long flight overseas.
