Oct 30 – Nov 18
Gulf Coast Foursquare Church, Hitchcock, TX
Hitchcock? South of Houston, before you get to Galveston!
(Yes, that is a piece of fence up in that tree. A little gift from Harvey!)
We’re serving with just one other SOWER couple (though there are other volunteers here!) this month and our primary tasks will revolve around hurricane recovery. While the church itself did not experience any flooding, the summer camp that is also on the property was heavily damaged by the flooding. Most of the buildings need their walls ripped out 2-4 feet up. Walls and insulation removed, mold treated, and then insulated and rebuilt. This is a huge job – one that we’ll just be tackling ‘one bite at a time!’.
And with face masks!
(One of the SOWERS from last month did a great blog post about the disaster relief efforts being spearheaded by the Gulf Coast Church – both at its camp and in the community. If you’d like to take a peak – HERE you go!)
