This is regarding the flooding we had here in Georgia. There was a service project set up on Saturday Sept. 26th to help those that had their homes flooded. I think the main goal was to be passing out cleaning kits. As the day went on though, it was realized, it was a little premature and that many people still needed help gutting out their homes. This is where I think it gets neat. It was a approved late Saturday night that more needed to be done, therefore setting up a service project throughout the stakes of north Georgia for the following day on Sunday. They were hoping to get around 25 men from each ward and in turn having a turn out of around 400 men. Around 9pm Saturday night we got a calling post asking, if possible the brethren to come and help the victims of the flood. The service project was scheduled to be from 8am-4pm. When Chris arrived he recieved a shirt and then they were assigned in groups and they went from house to house gutting them and pulling down all the wet drywall. The turn out was amazing they estimated about a thousand men there helping. This first picture is to show the car on the left was completely covered in water and the people in the backround were bowing earlier, expressing their gratitude for the help.This is one of the homes Chris helped gut.
