 Cleanup Day

At 9:00 am on August 25 the mercury was already approaching 90 and the relative humidity was in that
range as well. Nevertheless, people from several churches began to assemble on the grounds of Green Mountain Christian Center. They came to help us clean up after the fire and demolition of our building. Everyone donned work gloves and grabbed a rake or shovel. Within minutes, we were drenched in perspiration, but there was no quit in this crowd. We laughed as we worked, enjoying the fellowship and the sense of accomplishment at each square yard of the property that was cleaned of debris.

Lots of stuff left to pick up bits of wood, glass, metal, etc.
After the excavator finished, there was still lots of stuff to pick up. Bits of wood, glass, metal, insulation, etc. littered the entire area.

By the end of the day a seeming miracle had taken place - where only debris and destruction had been, the foundation of something new appeared.
