ELink Work Day

Our small group here at the MTC (missionary training center) worked together this weekend to take down eight trees for a neighbor in town.
Here's my man hard at work
(Thanks Sue for the photo!)

Look at them working so hard!

I didn't hear one word of complaint even though it was raining and everyone got soaked!

Geoff let us try our hands at tree climbing with his gear.

I can now tell you from first hand experience... it's harder than he makes it look!

Especially when crazy men with chain saws come near the base of the tree you're in!

Ethan spent his time flirting with the ladies...
I tried to convince him I'm the only girl for him! =)

What did you do this weekend?

Happy Monday!

Holly Renee said...

Our little Ethan? A flirt? Never!

I certainly did not cut any trees down, although we have had some fun with this in the past.

Cute pictures.

Woohoo, Go Melissa! Hey, we could use another climber......LOL! You just can't keep the Gills out of trees. =D

Your sweet mama was telling me about your group doing this - very kind and thoughtful. I'm sure they deeply appreciated the blessing.
