Hi to you all! This is mama !! I had a wonderful trip! Nine of us left in our church van and drove 9 hours to Gauthier, MS. We arrived at 1AM Friday morning and had to set up our cots & sleeping bags in a local church recreation center. 140 other people were there already so we had to be quiet as we went to bed.
At 6:30AM they woke us for breakfast. Short night! After breakfast we had devotions then they bussed us to Gulfport, MS where we did various construction tasks at different sites. I was assigned to a local church that had been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. My job was to help lay floor tile in the men's restroom! :( ! They fed us well and all activities were well planned. On Saturday we did the same thing. Evening activities included such things as table games and just meeting new people. You know I like table games! Too bad Papa couldn't have come, I beat him quite often at table games, but I still love him! :)
On Sunday Morning we left at 8am to go home. I surprised Papa at church at 6PM. He wasn't expecting me until later! I grabbed him and gave him a hug and a kiss! He was very busy wrapping up church elections for the day. He was the elections coordinator. We finally got home about 8:30PM. Let me clear up one matter - I have no tattoo's! :) Papa told me all about that and read me Tam's "story". Very funny! I want to thank you for keeping papa entertained and somewhat out of mischief. We missed each other very much. He is my very best friend.
Love you all -
