Team prepared to powerwash a home.
For our final project, our team is working in Minot, ND on houses that were flooded in June. We have been mucking and gutting the houses and sanitizing the houses so far. Later we will be buttoning them up for winter. The organization we’re working with is called Lutheran Disaster Response. They are currently focusing on homes first that are in the most need; families that are low income and disabled or elderly people who can’t afford or are unable to clean up their houses on their own. The families and people we have had the privilege of meeting so far are welcoming and have nothing but gratitude. It has been amazing to work with such generous people even after they have lost so much.

Because of the conditions in Minot we are staying in a town called Granville 22 miles away at a church that is connected to LDR. Our housing situation this round is very interesting, we are in a basement in a room with an oasis palm tree theme, in a town with 250 people and the only two establishments that haven’t closed down or been burnt down are the local bars right across the street from each other.
