Sandy Aftermath, New Jersey

These few photos were taken on Wednesday, November 7, 2012. We arrived around 8:30 am and there was mandatory evacuation that all must leave by 3:00 PM. The sky was overcast all day, then around noon the wind picked up and it began to rain again. This is how the streets looked…This was the living room of the house we worked at. The project was to rip down all dry wall from 4 feet up from the floor in the entire house. This meant working room to room, as to be able to move all personal belongings (that were able to be saved) from one unfinished room to the next completed. Also notice the dents in the wall just below the window…the dry wall was very saturated and it didn’t take much pressure for an indention.In the short amount of time given, we were able to nearly finish the entire  house, including tearing out the lower set of kitchen cabinets, removing the flooring, and insulation. The next picture is one of the house across the street…Our hearts go out to the people who have experienced loss in this storm.  Tom (the home owner) said he’s thankful that he has his wife and children. Those are the most valuable possessions one can have that cannot be replaced like many other earthly things. “…for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corin. 4:18)
