HS Mission Trip – Work Day 1

We are coming to the end of Work Day 1 here in Mississippi! Our project this week is to re-roof a section of a house belonging to Bob, one of the nicest people we have ever met (and he made us delicious cookies today!). When Katrina hit back in 2005, the storm took off a section of Bob’s roof. Since that time Bob had paid two different contractors to repair it; both contractors took his money and ran. Due to all the weather and prolonged exposure to the elements, large sections of the roof are now in pretty bad shape. So, as we got started, today was all about “out with the old” so we can start some “in with the new” tomorrow. A couple pics from the team hard at work:

Getting started taking the shingles off, as well as pulling out all of the end boards of wood, and a very excited Jack displaying just how how and humid the weather is:
