Everybody's Working For the Weekend

We're hard at work this morning in Croatia. Good morning to you in the States. Here are a few shots of our experiences today.

Steve Bowman lays tile. What an expert!

L to R Jim Moore, Steve Bowman, Kinney Riffey, and Sydney Bowman prepare to get dirty!

In the basement, Rita England, Amy Pickle, and Link Hudson load tables. Yours truly "watches," and one of our Croatian friends is supervising. We are clearing out a room this morning so that it can be painted. A hotel recently donated used furnishings to the pastoral center, and they are storing tables, chairs, and materials in the basement. We are in the process of sorting and re-stacking so that we can paint.

L to R Mike Cunningham, Rita England, Matthew Evans, Craig Shell, Mark Palmer, Andy Edmondson, Marion Graybeal, and H. L. England compliment each other on a fine job of stacking chairs.

L to R Brent Starling, Dianne Graybeal, and Julie Rice receive instructions. We have a Croatian tile expert at the center with us this morning. He trained the crew for an hour or so, and then they went to work on the dorm rooms on the third floor. We're staying on the second floor, which gives us easy access to our rooms.

Scott Ballard (L) and Scott Moore rush to be trained in tiling. We awoke at 6:30 a.m. for a 7:30 a.m. start to our day. Some "early birds" were moving furniture by 7:00 a.m. Greg Reed is our supervisor for this part of the project.
