The roof is one of the most crucial parts of a home. Without a good one, water (and other things!) can get into the rest of the structure and lead to all sorts of other problems.
This past Saturday, Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at UD came out and helped remove and replace a roof for a single dad and his kids. The father is trying hard to keep things going after seeing his income reduced by disability, and it turns out that their roof had been installed improperly. There was no way that he could afford to have it replaced on his own.
Nine volunteers from RUF—including campus minister Rev. Nick Owens—came out, had a great time, and managed to get half the roof stripped, dried, and ready for shingles, so the next volunteer group would be able to set about applying them. Praise God that we were able to help this dear family make their house a safer place to live, and please join us in praying that the Lord would continue to meet their needs.
