Here is another e-mail update I received Tuesday (6:13pm our time) from Marlin Weaver who is leading our 9-member team from Grace Church currently in France:
"Hi Scott, Just a quick note to let you know that the France team is doing well. We're finishing up the list that Jay Hocking gave us at the beginning of our stay. I never thought that we'd finish, but this is a super motivated team. We've finished building a retaining wall, treating the wood on the patio, tiling the dining room floor, building concrete stairs, painting in the new building and lots of little jobs like mowing, cleaning rooms and helping with meals and dishes. God couldn't have given us a better--more united team. Tuesday evening we enjoyed a barbecue with some Grace Brethren missionaries and the Pastor and his wife, Gerard and Dominique Maldonado, of the Macon Grace Brethren church. Wednesday is our last full day then we leave the Chateau on Thursday afternoon. We arrive in Paris at about 7:45 PM. We plan to spend the evening doing some visiting in Paris and then we'll crash at the airport and catch our plane for the US on Friday AM. Thanks much for your prayers and support, Marlin--For the team."
