The good news is that Oakridge Ministries had acquired lovely new (fat) mattresses for their bunk beds.
The bad news is that now their bedspreads don’t fit. Continue reading Stretching a quilt and lighting the way
One Week in Oklahoma
One week into October
One week into our Oakridge Project
And it’s been a good week! This is our third time at Oakridge, which is unusual for us since we generally like to work at new (to us) ministries. But coming back to Oakridge is always a sweet experience. It’s a family run camp, with five siblings all working alongside Mom and Dad with the camp maintenance and activities. And as the kids get older, some pretty cute grandkiddos are on the scene too!! We all gather for devotions in the morning, and I just love how Brian’s (Papa) lap is always open for a little one or two!
We’re working this month with our good friends, Kim and Joe, and some new good friends, Lana and Dan. The guys are tackling a big electrical job. Like rewiring the main chapel and dining hall and move all the wiring to underground Big.
Gary got called away from that job to do some electrical work up at their bed and breakfast (The Ridge). I don’t have any pictures of that, but I’m pretty sure he was working hard!
We girls were focused in the West Chapel.
We’ve been sprucing up the room, touching up paint, replacing and repairing wallpaper,
and re-staining places on the floor where the finish has come up.
The floor is going to be our biggest challenge because, well, it’s BIG, and we really don’t know the first thing about repairing stained concrete floors. But we’re muddling our way through, with lots of directions, a little help from You-Tube, and lots of rubber gloves!
We still have a couple of steps to go on just this section, so I’m pretty sure there is some job security for us!
So this first week has been great! We’ve had the opportunity to worship together, enjoy some wonderful meals together and even attend an adorable two-year old’s pumpkin birthday party!
Grown-up really know how to concentrate on those pumpkins!
We’ll be here until just before Thanksgiving, so we’re looking forward to a grand (and productive!) time here!
Thanks for stopping by!
