Our group from Knightsville.
In total there were 9 sites. My site had 3 people from my church and 11 people from the other churches. We worked on Ms. LuAnn Wright's house. She has a husband, one daughter, 3 sons, and a sweet grandson that lives with her. Her brother lives next door and was a big help to us during the week.
This is her house before.
As you can tell, her house was very much in need of a new roof and paint job...which we gave her throughout the week! We worked for 5 long, HOTTT days on scraping the old paint off, stripping off the old roof, putting a fresh coat of white paint with black trim on the house, putting on a new roll roof, giving her 2 new ceiling fans inside, cutting her grass, repairing the front porch and painting it, putting Plexiglas in some broken windows, and cleaning up the landscape. It took about 25 gallons of paint and 30 rolls of roofing to finish her very large house! We were very busy!! The family was a huge help to us too. They helped do a little bit of everything that we were involved in. It couldn't have been done without them! As a gift, we gave them a new front porch swing as well as a table and chairs for the porch.
This was her house after we finished!
We also had other activities throughout the week such as going bowling, swimming, going to the local library (to catch up on facebook and email!), having a Talent Show and visiting the famous "Button King" from Bishopville.

Overall, we had a great, rewarding week and I can't wait to go back next year! :)
