<<< Did you follow our instagram feed yesterday to catch a glimpse at all the action?! (if you're on instagram, follow us @whispermtn !!) >>>
Last week, (all) the guys surveyed a spot on our camp field, very carefully preparing for a big move to take place!
When the big day arrived, Mr. Big Boom Truck was set in place. The Hub felt like a hive of activity from excited (and slightly nervous) little bees!
The prepping, waiting, praying, watching went on for some time until finally all was in place and the move began!
Clearing the roof of the Hub and Hub porch were the critical points in this event! We thought all was going perfectly……until the little building turned out to be heavier than expected!
After some nail-biting struggle to figure out a solution ("who says you
don't need high school math when you're older?" says Marty!), the
building finally made it over to the "moving truck" without any catastrophes!
The guys strapped her down onto the trailer, double-checked to make sure it would hold (eek!), then said a prayer for God's favor to fall on this little trek to the field!
Down the road, and round the bend, onto the field it goes!!
Favor was had all around! Barry did a fabulous job driving/steering the boom and ensuring our buildings weren't damaged! We are grateful for his hard work and patience on the job! We are pretty excited to finally have a decent storage building down on the field!
We continue to prepare and raise funds for the new building to be built behind the Hub! This is our current priority project that must be done by summer! We are thankful to all those who've been giving to help us raise these funds! If you like carpentry and wanna come visit Western North Carolina, I know a place that could use a volunteer or two!!
