Starting the day tearing out sheet rock, flooring and digging out tsunami mud
We tore out all the way to floor joists and then got down between the joists to shovel out tsunami mud
And of course we had to eat
The Samaritan's Purse truck - we worked through their office in Ishinomaki
They have done 60 houses out of 100
Obento lunches were delivered to us
Inside walls cleared of sheet rock
David and son Tim from Austin TX - the team we joined up with
The owner's god shelf intact - we respected her wishes
Wilson and Jim lunching in the van
Piles of trash sorted and bagged
Another Samaritan's Purse house - just met this team
Paul and I walked around to find people we had helped during our first trip back in April, and found 3 of the 4 home! It was a great reunion and good contact with them.

Floor coming up
Then Dave fell through the floor and hit two joists. He has five sore spots and is not looking forward to waking up tomorrow. Wait, let me rephrase that.
Paul took me to a nearby clinic where the doc and nurses seemed to have a great time fixing me up. We made them pose for a picture.
Thank you for your continued prayers!
