BOUNCERS headed out to their worksites early this morning to continue ministering to the city of Waco. Students are learning how to do their tasks and are doing a great job on their sites. BOUNCERS from different churches are getting along well with one another. The common purpose of rehabilitating homes has really united the students to keep pressing on to continue the work at their sites.

Several media outlets have already covered BOUNCE. A television station, a newspaper, The Waco Regional Baptist Association, The City Council and Waco Community Development have all come out to sites to feature BOUNCE over just two days. They've interviewed students, leaders and even a homeowner.

Nick Storm, an 18-year-old from FBC Kingwood said that the work he's done on the roof has been his favorite part. "Everybody is focused and hard-working," said Nick. "Even though it's hard work and it's hot outside, everyone's getting along. "

Michael George, the Youth Pastor from Southwest Park Baptist Church said that the coolest thing that's happened on their worksite has been the encouragement they've received from the members of Primera Iglesia Bautista, who have provided them with lunch for the week. He said that they've gone above and beyond, bringing snacks and drinks multiple times a day. They even pray with BOUNCERS and stay for the student-led devotional..
