We all arrived safely around mid-afternoon. We met Gene Hamby, Martha Dixon and many other members of 1st Presbyterian Church of Sheffield. They had a great picnic for us on the Tennessee River. The mayor of Sheffield's wife gave us a good understanding of what took place on April 27, 2011 and the effects on the surrounding area.

 

We held our evening devotions in the sanctuary, cleaned up and went to bed. Tomorrow starts another work effort to help rebuild lives and homes.

We all went down to the Tornado Disaster Assistance office in Phil Campbell where we met the team coordinating the assistance. We broke into two teams based on available skills and the most pressing needs.

 

Our assignment is the home of Jesse and Susan Huey. Their son John has muscular dystrophy and Jess has a muscular degenerative disease. Our task is replace an inadequate tub with a handicap shower, repair portions of the deck, rebuild the ramp & replace some rotten soffit and fascia. They also need some repairs on their ceiling caused by the water damage incurred when their roof was damaged by the tornado.The other team was sent to replace a rotten water-damaged floor in a house trailer.

 

On Monday, we were able to remove the tub at the Huey's. The other team removed flooring and found layers of rotten linoleum and sub-floor. The members of 1st Presbyterian Church of Sheffield provided dinner for our team at the church. We held our evening devotions in the sanctuary, cleaned up and went to bed.
