Our second to last day – this has gone by so quickly! Breakfast was pancakes and fruit. The devotional this morning was about Esther and trusting in what the Lord has planned for you. After breakfast, we fixed the lunch stuff then left to our job sites.
Pastor Josh drove us there, left to go help team one, then came to pick us up. Today we were able to get everything insulated, almost everything drywalled, and started mudding (sticking plaster over the cracks). Mudding is SO MUCH FUN, but SO MESSY! 😂 (see picture below….)
The owner came and worked with us again today. He really wanted us to finish the pool, but it started raining before we could power wash it. It was Jaclyn’s turn to give us the devo, and it was also about trusting God and following what He says. She did a great job.
Before lunch, we finished the insulation and almost all the drywall. After lunch, we finished the drywall and started mudding. The thing with mudding is that you have to be really precise because that’s what you’re painting over. Also, when you go over the screws they have to be all the way in the wall or the mud won’t go over it.
When we tried to clean the mud off the mud pans and blades (we used a hose that was outside) we got water all over our legs. Then, it started pouring outside. We were soaked!
When Pastor Josh drove us home, we had to have the heat on because we were so cold. (I think they just didn’t put the air conditioner on). After cleaning up, we just hung out in the mess hall.
Pastor Josh taught us a card game. I just watched, half listening. It was funny because later during the game, I mentioned something about the rules, and Carson said something like, “How do you know more than I do? You’re not even playing!” We all started laughing. Then, we switched games and were going to play slap, but we couldn’t remember the rules and it seemed like everyone played it differently. We weren’t able to figure it out before dinner, which was pulled pork sandwiches. They were good.
During dinner, we tried to play two truths, one lie. That didn’t really work out, though; we kept interrupting each other to have random conversations. After dinner, we cleaned up the kitchen, then went out for ice cream at a place called Fat Cat. It was tasty.
