Bastrop church turns charred trees into pieces of recovery
A church in Bastrop is turning dark reminders of the wildfire into pieces of recovery. Timberline Fellowship bought a portable sawmill to transform charred pine trees into usable lumber for wildfire victims.
Volunteers work in the backyard of the church Monday through Saturday. Pastor Gordon Friday spends most of his time covered in sawdust driving a tractor to haul logs. He still preaches on Sundays. The church has given away thousands of dollars worth of lumber for free.

Making Sawdust in Papua New Guinea
I trained several of our men here in Kamea-Land to run the sawmill. This little 10 hp diesel just chugs along and makes beautiful wood out of rough trees in the jungle.  As for the safety equipment...these guys have never worn shoes before, and when I gave them the safety equipment, they kept taking them off and leaving them stacked in the corner. You can only tell them to be safe so many times. Instead, they utilize common sense.
Here we are cutting wood for the GuestHouse. (We have several missionaries that will be coming new to Papua New Guinea in the next year and they will need a place to call home until they can build their own.)

Alternative Disaster Response
Friends of Hurricane Creek have been provided the tools to demonstrate that there is a better way to handle tree debris from storms. 
Many thanks to ALTEC Environmental Products for making dreams come true! We will use a Wood-Mizer to mill the trees that are suitable for lumber. The rest we will use the donated ALTEC DC 1317 chipper to reduce it to useable chips for mulch!
