Carpet, Church

On Saturday I was finishing up the carpet install with Nick and Roger. Mary stayed at the camp to work registration for the distribution. (Distribution is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but we were closed last Wednesday due to the storm.)

Sunday, April 30

On Sunday, we went to church at Calvary Chapel, here in the tent in Bay St Louis. They used to serve three meals a day seven days a week, but now they do only a couple of meals. They focus mostly on construction work, and they have a Sunday service and a Wednesday service. The church service was nice and all, but I find myself wondering why they don't plug into the local churches here instead. Especially since almost everyone in the congregation (except us) was a Calvary Chapel volunteer.

On Sunday afternoon we just had to get out of Bay St Louis for a couple of hours. We drove up to Gulfport, just 20 miles up the coast from here. Mary went craft shopping at Michaels while I went computer shopping at Office Max next door. We've had occasion to send some sympathy cards and get-well cards to friends, and also an unexpected birthday card for a man, and Mary didn't have anything suitable in the stock she brought with her. So she went shopping for a few things to make more cards. She also got a shipment from Stampin' Up on Monday.
