We work hard but also enjoy quality fellowship and make friends that will last a lifetime. While on the trip you will be provided with three hearty meals each day as well as popsicles, slushies, ice cold Gatorade and water to keep you hydrated. Our ladies and children work hard to make sure our bellies are full throughout the week. Breakfast consist of biscuits and gravy, sausage, bacon, eggs, fresh fruit, tomatoes, oatmeal, grits and cereal (for those who aren't big on breakfast). From time to time we may throw in a treat of chocolate gravy or pancakes.
Lunch consist of sandwiches, chips, cookies and other desserts, fruit, and veggies for those who want to throw together a salad. We start soon after lunch preparing for our big meal of the day, supper. You will be amazed at what these ladies cook
up including meats, vegetables, casseroles, desserts and bread. You will not walk away hungry.
One night a week during each week the group will meet for a night of worship and some fun and laughs. We value the relationships we build during our trips and realize that we go to give a blessing but leave with an even bigger one.
Everyone is needed. From ac to electrical, from the experienced to the inexperienced we have a place for everyone. We need help in the kitchen but women are always welcomed on the work site just depending on where you feel comfortable. Children can also help in the kitchen or on the work site (depending on age) and are always a welcomed sight when they deliver cold treats throughout the day.
BRING YOUR TOOLS- Nail aprons, hammers, tape measures, tri squares and if you have a special skill please bring tools to complete that task.
It isn't a rare site to see young and old sporting tool belts and hard hats throughout the week. Also bring your singing, theatrics, a good sense of humor and a heart ready to serve.
Each family or individual is responsible for their trip cost which includes travel to and from, hotel rooms (we usually get discounted group rates) and food (we charge each person $40 for adults, $20 for children - this includes 3 meals a day for the entire week).
We normally have a place for those with campers to hook up their campers depending on availability.
We attempt to keep trip cost as low as possible so that families are financially able to attend our trips. OH - don't forget your money for ice cream, Mr. Ray usually makes sure we have a dairy queen around.
