Atmore, Alabama Day 3

Posted by: Meg, Gab, and Ms.Sizzle =)
Good Mornin' Ya'll! This morning we woke up to CRAZY temperatures in the low 30's. Brrr!! A few brave guys led by Mr. Hood took a chilly 2-3 mile run to start their day. We started our morning with hot cereals and hot chocolate. After "Devos" we split up into four groups, and departed to our different work sites. Our day consisted of various complications. The chaperones decided they needed some cool radio handles to keep in contact:
Ms. Seely- Junkyard Dog
Mr. Hood- Bench Warmer
Mrs. Riter- Lunch Lady

After working hard to try to accomplish our different tasks, lunch was delayed by a water and gas shortage. Mrs. Riter's last resort to cook our hotdogs was to use the toaster oven. Power came on later in the afternoon. All of our teams were working hard on their jobs, some tasks included trench diving, collecting aluminum siding, finishing the deck, putting up vinyl siding and cleaning around the church property. After our jobs were completed, we were invited to go to the church potluck dinner and service afterward. We finished off the night with share time and awesome praise and worship. The sophomores and chaperones were heavily impacted. Overall, we had a day filled with fun, excitement, and lots of service.

Quote of the day:
"It would be nice to have some POWWAA!" - Mr. Rhodes
