So thanks to the team in no particular order.
Amanda Miller: Thanks for all the planning of the trip, getting together the agendas, having the meetings, and keeping us up to date with all the info we needed. Thanks as well for the work that you did while you were there in PR. You kept us organized and on time (as if that mattered there lol). Hey, and you jumped off the cliff too. Wouldn't have gone smoothly without you. Thank you.
Darrick Miller: Wow, bad back and all, you dominated the brick wall construction and the pouring of concrete into forms. You were a rock, an amazing worker despite our best efforts to torture your back in the van rides. Always a hard worker, your strength was amazing. Walls wouldn't have been finished without you. Thank you Big D!
Alan Penisten: Clearly Mr Positive the whole week. It was your connection to Jon that got us down there in the first place. Ever the creative and resourceful worker, your effort was phenomenal. You always had my wife laughing hard. You always brought the best out of the women when you worked with them. Always good laughter and work when anyone was with you.
Joni Skinner: If ever there was someone that didn't mind the critters, it was you. In fact, you were the first one anyone called when they needed to rid themselves of bugs or lizards. The incident in the van with the lizard was a fail though. You were great bending rebar all alone most of the time. If we ever needed a piece of rebar (which was most of the time) you were there. Good job Joni!
Terry Skinner: The elder statesman held his own despite the hand not fully cooperating. Despite the heat and intensity of the work, you never quit, nor had an excuse. You sat in the hot sun and tied rebar, mixed concrete, or set bricks. You tried everything, even the Octopus at dinner. Terry, well done and thank you.
Melissa Dagne: The surprise of the trip for me was the intensity of you. WOW! Such a hard worker and always the most dirty at the end of the day. Bend rebar, tie rebar, lift bricks, clean, help. Simply amazing. Never wanted to come in from snorkeling either. If you ever doubted how you can be used by God, think back to this trip, and see your heart. Super proud!
Whitney Shaw: Watching you work was like watching a tornado. GO! GO! GO! No quit in you. Super competitive worker. Not only did you push yourself, but others on the trip as well. Brought out the best in everyone. I watched you and Stephanie work together and it was like 2 intense cheerleaders putting up a wall. Funny Stuff. Plus having you guys next door made for good cockroach stories. Awesome job!
Pete Shaw: Sir Mixalot! You worked hard, and played hard. Whether mixing concrete, drilling into a wall, playing with little Logan, or shooting hoops with kids from the church, you were great. Plus the master roach killer. Cramming that tall frame into the back of a van was selfless. Thanks for your heart to serve and do the work. You and Whitney always made Steph and I laugh.
Stephanie Steele: My beautiful wife, thank you so much for all that you did. It was a lot of work for a couple of old people. The sun was hot, the bugs were biting, the roaches were huge, but you came through. I know what an amazing worker you are and a great help to me that you are. You and I always work well together. I am so proud of you and how you work with me.
Jon Marshall: Our Camp leader and chauffeur a big thank you to you and the camp. May God continue to bless you and the work you have done there for the last 13 years. It is a small world that people that went to high school together would have a chance to meet again in Puerto Rico. I hope Transformation Church was a blessing to you last weekhttp://www.campcaribe.com/en/index.html
