Hi again all!
Ok, we have two options.
#1- as previously emailed, we have been invited to participate in helping to gut Faith United Methodist Church in Minot. We would be joining a team from Washington. It would be leaving here on Tues, Sept. 20 and returning on Sat Sept. 24th.
#2- I found an agency that is not pulling out until November. We would leave on Saturday October 15th, work Monday through Friday on houses- gutting, getting some ready for winter, etc. and come back on Saturday the 22nd. So instead of NOLA7, we have MINOT1. There are a lot of unknowns at this very moment. But it sounds like there is a church for us to stay in and use for our cooking, etc, and showers available at the local Y for free for volunteers or soemthing like that. I'll check into it.
Cost shouldn't be much. Not as far to go, cheaper to stay, etc.
Let me know if you'll be getting on the bus.
The spiritual life cannot be made suburban. It is always frontier, and we who live in it must accept and even rejoice that it remains untamed.
