Yesterday our driveway became a brightly coloured U-Box village.
Today was the big day. Five empty U-Boxes (U-Haul’s shipping and storage containers), four strong helpers (three from Joshua House Mens’ Recovery Ministries) and a house full of furniture and boxes to be moved.
The house emptied amazingly quickly but the boxes filled up even more quickly, despite the expert packing of Sean, one of our helpers from Joshua House. In order not to leave too many things behind, we needed to go and get two more U-Boxes. That was more than we have budgeted for but as we discussed whether or not to get the last box, good friends who were helping said that they wanted to ‘sponsor’ that box. So we got it and almost everything fitted in. What a blessing!
By mid-afternoon we were done but were exhausted!
