Over the last week we have begun tearing out the very old and worn out carpeting from the living/dining and entry areas. Luckily the wood floor underneath is still usable but will need some repair and sanding before being refinished. Now we will tackle the very beat up floor in the kitchen which we already know will need repairing and then will be prepped for new linoleum.
The downstairs bedrooms in the house are not currently liveable and we need to have them move in ready as soon as possible. So by early next week we hope to have lots or drywall repair done, the old dirty carpet ripped out and new carpet scheduled to be installed. There is also some remodel and electrical work that needs to be done.
Skyler, a young man from one of our other ministry homes has been helping out with the new home. Skyler joined us about a year ago directly from Jail. He had battled alcohol for years and the courts did not know what to do with him any longer so they agreed to let him move into one of our homes. He has been freed by grace from his alcohol habit and now is a passionate disciple of Jesus Christ. What a joy it is to see the Lord transform a life right before our eyes!
