Getting It Done

Yesterday, our volunteer group held a house blessing for the Cummings house. Mr. and Mrs. Cummings are currently in the hospital, but 3 of their children came to the house to participate.

With an altar made out of scaffolding and a cross built from scraps, the volunteers held a house blessing that was simple and beautiful. Pastor Bob gave a wonderful talk about cherishing our blessings and the house was blessed followed by the taking of communion.

Sometimes we need moments like that to put this work into perspective. Volunteers from around the country came together to help strangers, and it has made such an incredible difference in everyone's life.

The Cummings children were incredibly thankful for all of the volunteer efforts and offered a blessing back "100-fold."

TEDRD is so grateful to be able to work with our incredible and inspirational volunteers and homeowners. Thank you all!


  1. I wish you could post the address of your facility so we would know where to meet on the start of the first work day.

  2. We prefer for groups to contact us first before they show up for a workday.

    But the address is
