Tuscaloosa Week Update!

Sorry we haven't been able to update the blog, but we've had sporadic internet since we've been here, and this is the first time it's been good enough to actually "work."

Sunday morning we packed our van FULL - as in we couldn't have fit another single item in it kind of full.
Tetris Level - Boss!
Happy Travelers - and LOOK! Gabs!

Lunch Break!

 Our hosts for the week is Ridgecrest Baptist Church. The girls got the primo real estate, near the showers, close to the bathrooms. :-) We're all happy campers! And Uncle Bo Nanner and the Squid made it too!

The first day was a bit disappointing, but we quickly over that as we started to connect as a team. Holt Elementary was so welcoming to us, and we saw quite a lot of the devastation that happened as we drove through Alberta City to get to the Holt Community.

Midweek found us at Forest Lake Baptist, which was one of the first places I saw when I was in the city the first time. Gone are the broken stained glass windows, replaced by new ones. The roof is no longer bare, the steeple that was upside down in the ground has been replaced by a new one with a light that I hear can be seen for quite a ways.

More to come tomorrow. . .check out our album HERE
