Seeing is believing

Pictures tell a thousand words, so here are some!


Here it comes!  It arrived at 5 p.m. from Port-au-Prince after having cleared customs in record time…God’s timing!


Maneuvering into the RMI work & storage yard is a bit tricky.


Getting ready to cut the security seal.  The workteam from 2nd Cape May Baptist Church, Marmora, NJ were anxious to get to work unloading the container.  Drew Thompson is there in the back making sure they do it right.


A little load shift in route, but after stabilizing it, everything was fine.

This 20 ft. container holds the parts, pieces & components for 30 homes!

Many hands make light work – and did they need a lot of hands!



These things were not light!


They worked into the night.  All of these components will make storm worthy homes, up to International Hurricane and Earthquake Codes.


Finally finished.  What a job!!
