Junior High WV Mission Trip 2008: Observation Day 4

Today was the final work day for our team. The teens did a phenomenal job of finishing up many of the projects we started. It was almost similar to Extreme Home Makeover! They transformed a moldy basement into an incredible play area for the two boys, they stripped and stained a huge deck, they did tons of landscaping, they cleaned gutters, destroyed wasp nests, babysat, cleaned pets, cleaned carpets, installed brand new flooring in the dining room and kitchen, prayed over the homeowners, and went to McD's late at night. Be sure to check back here and on Facebook for many more pictures to come. I am tired right now and want to go to bed as I have to take all these teens white water rafting early in the morning!

Quote of the Day

Sheila: (serious tone) . . . and when I am 75 I hope I am still doing missions and plan to keep on going until this body gives up!

Olivia: Why Mrs. Stebbins, you don't look a day over 63!

Sheila: (hostile tone) WHO SAID THAT?!?!?!?!
