Wednesday morning didn’t seem to be so hard getting up and going. After breakfast it was back to the work site. The guys working on the X braces were still working on that project. They are putting X braces up in an area of 30 by 40, so it is taking some time to finish the task.
Others were digging down to the footer of the building. The goal is to get low enough in order to put mortar around the bottom as another preventative method to keep water out from the building. They also painted seal locker on the building to assist in keeping the water out.
Another group was working on building a set of stairs to the second floor. And others were putting rock board up on top of OSB board around the outside of the building.
Work was still being done in a house on the property. The basement was the focus now. There was the need to remove water that had settled as well as get rid of a dog smell.
In the evening, at the gathering time, a discussion continued about motivation. Discussion focused upon why did they choose to attend a Christian College and why did they choose to be a Christian. The group was left with the question of “if there were no heaven or hell, would you still choose to believe in God?”
Thursday, was another slow day to get up and get going. Some stayed up late to play a strategy game, thus it was difficult to get up and get going. Eventually, it was off to the work site. Many of the tasks that were being tackled on Wednesday were still being tackled on Thursday.
At the group’s request, we shortened the work day, which meant having our gathering time at lunch and then cleaning up the work site early. At the gathering time, thoughts to the question from Wednesday were discussed.
After cleaning up, some people went for a hike, others went to Charleston, WV, and a few others stayed at the housing facility for some rest.
Because of it being basketball’s March Madness, some wanted to watch the games. A few people were able to connect a laptop to a video projector and sound system to watch the games over wifi.
