Below is is the first e-mail update (including some pictures) that I received Wednesday night at 6:19 (our time) from Marlin Weaver who is leading our 9-member team from Grace Church currently on a work project in France. In his e-mail he mentions Jay and Debbie. Jay and Debbie Hocking are missioanries at the Chateau who are supported by our church:
"Hi Scott, Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that we arrived safely at the Chateau de St Albain. We were very tired last evening, but everyone was a trooper. This morning we visited the Chateau and then decided on our first work projects. We've gotten a good start...We'll be tiling the dining room, painting shutters and windows in one of the buildings and building some cabinets. All those projects have been started. Jay and Debbie send their greetings. Marlin"
