God Sends More of His "ANGELS"!!


















Last Sunday, shortly after Church, our good friends Rocky and Sheri Rhoades arrived. They drove long and hard all the way from somewhere in Texas to give us a hand with our building project. They were headed for California, then coming here on the return trip, but they changed their plans and came here first.  Rocky is a great and experienced carpenter and is involved with HERO Makers Missionary Organization that helps build houses and school's for orphans and children at risk in Mexico.  They are a wonderful couple and are truly dedicated to their work for God. Last summer they visited us for a few days and we are glad they could come back.  We are really happy to have Rocky's help and expertise.
Here we are welcoming them just after they pulled in. You can tell by the smile on Rollie's face that he is HAPPY to have some HELP!  I'm hugging Sheri as she is one of my "special" gals......

If you're thinking that is my beautiful big maroon Volvo 770 truck, you're very observant. However, that's not mine but a true sister to mine out of the same fleet. It is equipped exactly as ours, same year, same engine, transmission, everything. In fact, my key will even open his doors and work in the ignition.. Nice truck Rocky.

They look alike don't they? It's hard to tell them apart but that's mine on the left.
Soon they were settled on one of our V.I.P. parking spots fully equipped with electricity, water and special macerator sewer dumping service!!  That's Rollie and Gina's Volvo770 parked behind their RV.  Hey, we have our own "fleet".....that's 3 Volvo 770's.
Rocky spent the first day looking over the good work Rollie had done and here he is checking with Ms pat on how she wants her kitchen.
It wasn't long until we were continuing to get prepped for the Dry Wall.  After getting all the proper bracing in, Rollie and Rocky were preparing to route all the wiring and plumbing. Then it will be time for the insulation.   It's moving right along.  I can't believe all the stuff that goes into this construction and the WORK involved. I continue to Thank God and all his Angels for what they are all doing for us.  Praise the Lord!!

This morning we are all getting prepared to leave at 7:00 AM for Rapid City (50 miles) to buy supplies. The days start early around here and believe me by 4pm, sometimes without even stopping for lunch, we are ready for the "social hour". More appropriately called our "Happy Hour".  Shortly after 5pm we are ready for some "grub" and then relax. Nobody stays up very late around here, with those hours we're ready for bed.

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!

What a wonderful work (Hero Makers) your friends Rockie and Shari are doing. I read about it on Rollie's post. What a blessing to those wonderful children.

Looks like you all are making great progress with your apartment! Before you know it you and Pat will be sitting in your living room relaxing and looking at that beautiful view from your front window. :)

Take care!!

It's terrific that you are getting more professional help with this project from your friends. That's a great looking fleet of trucks in your yard too. I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing about the plumbing and wiring installs. Hope the guys stay safe with all that equipment.

It looks like you are coming along nicely on your project! We passed your friends while we were heading south on 385 out of Chadron. It's a small world!

Isn't it great when you have some like-minded friends get together for some work and fellowship! Looks like the beginnings of a first rate time work party!
