5:31 pm
have that mankind until you were part of the water. here you get thirty up to your chest it was a two year process three and a half feet deep here we didn't panic you leave just because the new jersey was going to be in a job in the water and we'd go rubber insulators and i had for. a number a moment and i waited till we should all. so we got in the boat and. try to make every good decision you can. as our heroes get a firsthand look at the destruction that was caused. stephen is trying to piece together this home just. he's always been the most observant baldwin brother in the world here you know very close to his trowbridge. this was one of the next

5:33 pm
which you did your personal touches this is all the crap my grandpa's house passed away. then got this old french presidential dress area and made it into a party fanatic. and it there if you were coming through that toilet and that into the house. this is not always. this is healthier now there's nothing. here is. really. hot it. so. this issue. and to look at it it's like oh you know. maybe you can drive it don't look so. so bad. that we're getting yes we've painted
5:34 pm
a wall with like an old resisted but battering the paint in sheet rock and roll a shit like that you. can't get that. we're going to try to salvage what we can out of the house to receive it like that we just bought. exterior to light maybe cleaners and stuff you have to use because even if it's in there yeah. it is cool you want to be close the front door doesn't even close all the way became a lot of our stuff in the house that we have left so we keep doing this job and with the fans going and we just leave everything up. and the neighbors keep an eye on the house for us. right here kind of money this is all really wet and my husband didn't go over to pick something up and because the always there when he bent over and his father left the impression in the wall because it was like molding clay
5:35 pm
just to suit your contribution to your check to do that he's a school yet you've gone through every school teacher stephen has always had an eye for beauty art this is our dad and he wanted to say these are not. yet down to my kind of life dream to really go for it. you know for rose the current was flowing things have shifted and moved around this entire backyard and here's a big crack house being high level and moving. there's so much shift in here. and that's not just a sheet rock that's the shift absolutely. after a tour of the home stephen has outside but gets a little distracted you behave i want to learn to. speak. so that big mountain. so i'm going to do without even thinking out of my son and at
5:36 pm
the same time building up a head site we're going to lease twelve inches above where the flood worst came to but i'm thinking about putting a pier home on top of that as well we don't know what's going to become and again they said this never happens here in the last two years it's happened twice not even ten miles for us. we're just trying to be ready for the next. well i want to see quite a back porch. mystery which you got ok that was easy me i got to hang on to going to bed back. now i think i remember somebody mentioning the back porch float away this is where that was right here it was a four by force a snap no i never actually had an anchor to the house it's an older you were and you're doing the remop right absolutely so. if i'm correct there's an object to see off your beautiful backyard is this is that these you know
5:37 pm
that's a very deck or you're referring to yes or. you stand on a. good and everybody up here. my friend danny with gas digital cash i want to let these folks know the other reason we're here think we have a little bit of money we can help you with and that you at least try to help you get back on your feet do you have a smartphone do you go to the app store and look for the dash wallet i can only check my e-mail like twice a week these guys invented their own currency stephen checks his e-mail twice a week but he only reads them never. you know because these magic numbers and over here three thousand three thousand that's nine twenty nine and so it is dash me dash is a digital currency so it's that simple at this. so you've already received.
5:38 pm
this office. visit by building. oh yes actually you could use that for gift cards for all depots of the i see the numbers changing what does that mean just means that the prices fluctuate at the moment and it will tend to go up and down like if you held onto it for a couple of days you may have several hundred more dollars. trying to stop trying to get the more i don't oh ok i would say by the end of the years from we're going to go up by a bit more and sestak let up on the sports a new beginning. just remember max gets paid to speak on t.v. and do a shake. things to do something that some call to make you some might think you don't think i'm pushing us. to do here or should you just love it after bringing some relief to amy and jacob our heroes see the immediate impact that can be made with the help of
5:39 pm
cryptocurrency but with more work to be done they hit the road to bring that same helping hand to another family. how does it feel to be a sheriff the greatest job in the world it's as close to being a king as any job there is what business model helps to run a prison now we just do it on like a nobody oh visitation i don't no one comes anymore when i was a sergeant may be more cost effective that's what they want to do that knowing they don't give a damn if you do the chores and not actually paying enough to put it back into. the louisiana incarceration rate is twice as high as the u.s. sandbridge. what she is behind such shock such.
5:40 pm
as cars are survival guide the station just like all the stores. have resurfaced. he sure it's clearly going to get him back. oh heck no. repatriations came to the rescue seven years. ago of the separate cars kaiser and ford. los angeles the city of luxury and free but also an alarming number of people living in the streets. the simple fact in l.a. is there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in it's been a struggle. to get this man from his own response to the problem and constructed dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter when you have nothing in order
5:41 pm
to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle but do the earth or news accept such true lucian a tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution you craft to have someone want to touring the site otherwise it'll be a free for all the news there a better alternative to envy homelessness crisis. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you were a south in taken your last to bang turn. your at the top to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for me i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was again still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to
5:42 pm
question our art. and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one might differ. as fate because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its make. it a murderer. our heroes are still striving to make a bit of difference in the lone star state so they had to visit with another family who's been affected by the hurricane there is max well if you find out please let us know the school says look. this is what's pilgrimages all about. oh. oh oh my goodness. looks like a parody. clarence stephen there you look at are you james pleasure
5:43 pm

5:44 pm
really going on with the security situation who are all these folks and wires here well this is me insane this house and we live here and our three kids berglund value mine. and mine ok and it's my sister and her husband and their family member other and his wife and their family and they're all in this thanks to a son as i thought their own house is there and they live ten minutes up the road so we started being asked to show everybody kind of what we're going through on a date. basis trying to get a lot of back together and everything. and here are you living here no where in our camp or right now but they entered our camper now also because they've got water damage and so we're not living here but we're fixing to be back in this weekend when they come and take our camper trailer. and they said that's ok yeah i mean we're going to have to make it ok there's hotels but there's hours away and we work and the kids are in school so we're trying to get back to a little bit of normal life so that there's nothing no regulation or anything no situations and the government said you can't say this and they've actually allowed
5:45 pm
it right now due to the situation and how high was the water here i think at the half in our house they got about three foot. with all the sandbags yes that was a futile attempt to keep the water oh yes you know where i was shovel in a bowl and we had a sandbag that we were just trying to throw it on the other side of splashing back and it wasn't a face it really wasn't open much but we tried we even tried chop back and inside the house when it came in james you're from here yeah. yeah ever seen anything like this no not here that's what they're saying this is the worst ever and nobody thought it would get as much water as it did nobody thought it neighbors everybody else nobody thought the amount of water we had here so did you make use of the boat that so we had to be rescued out of here and that boat pulled behind us with some with our dog and some of our belongings we were on one boat all of us family and then other boat road behind us with some of our stuff and our dog and the can on it so that we would leave them. thank goodness yeah oh book came in and they always
5:46 pm
want to use the boat so it actually came in handy this you also hoses right now and you're in the same situation you know we got water damage and you guys are just yes or rather than it was their home totally destroyed so we're they're living with that and we're missing sheet rock we don't have a kitchen well we. sure they're praying for you guys for real and so all the folks out there in t.v. land here your. what's your name again. no it's not how do you get it really how do you spell. you know my daughter's name as well seeley. like we said the most observant baldwin brother so we go inside to go look. what's going on in here now how do you then move to. clean everything you think really prevent you from our living room and kitchen. counter.
5:47 pm
whatever he looks like. and now this is four feet this is the sheet rock the insulation vince all got to go. but the woods ok or that's when it was ok he just needs to drown and that's why we have you know that's all here we turn on ac leave it circulate get all the humidity and everything out and we've treated it with a mole in the main drain field the stuff that day she doesn't stay where we continue to grow so we can't act was moaning you know that everywhere is green black and white and so we get all the ways that foul and let it dry and start fresh and you know hopefully it'll be ok you know not to mention what was in the water that is more dangerous even than the mold flesh eating bacteria and everything else that had been reported you heard some about that yeah i heard this on the news and you guys probably heard it as well as that there's been multiple reports in the houston area of people getting affected with flesh eating bacteria isn't merson all these all these other different diseases that are floating in the water because you
5:48 pm
know especially in these rural areas a lot of a lot of these homes probably have septic tanks so you know everything that's in the septic tank is coming up and you know barrels and stuff with chemicals and everything floating in it flowed down the street so you know who knows what's in the water how long has it taken since the water till now but how long ago was that i had a month now. after having the days after the water subsided where he lives at the again this was almost a week of the wire. stagg. slow to work yes. here's our. children's room our son's room and just pretty much the same thing. down to the frame down to the studs which are girls very narrow point and solicitors and all that is in their history a lot of it matters that i didn't really know were going for the bed there were thirty thousand left the bathroom cabinets are in there and the cement was here and
5:49 pm
yeah we had cars there was a blessing yes yes and i was and some were some some. dr. seuss a real you know it's your house and yours was third what's been your response from red cross we were there all the armored vehicles we actually file for i think the day after it happened and we're waiting we've done paper we actually had a female inspection on the fifteenth says that about two weeks now we have really heard anything other than they needed some more documentation from us so verify that we don't actually have flood insurance so just like everything else of that paper you know you have to go through the motions and say we're still waiting and hoping for the best i've met with people in twelve cities they already know what i've heard a lot of people say and as we all know they only give me like twelve dollars their house was destroyed they've got twelve hundred dollars to work with. at this point i would even be happy with two hundred dollars you know that is i mean it's
5:50 pm
anything better than nothing i feel like and when we're trying to bring our three kids back in here and live to think about even that would be something it would be a start you know would be back and still a share buy and sheet rock or something to be able to make it livable and safe for the kids and funding why use your stance to kind of i mean we're at the point now we're trying to let everything droughts you know which is a big deal because we can't just go and slap new stuff off and stuff it still always starts going to start the whole. and they'll do it again or have a little waiting a little bit of a waiting game and then once the plane is there trying to think back together very little by little i guess the old saying goes just pick a forward if you've got a roof over your head even though the lord's earlier house is trying to. get into both. well guys. obviously have some work to do. and. along with that you get your hands full with little ones. i mean it sort of feel like you know trying to
5:51 pm
a little i don't swing a hammer. definitely circus act that's for sure it's this sort of or well you know what you know when you when you think it's going to be fun no matter what whenever some bad happens. there's always going to be a little spark a light somewhere yeah so danny scared a little something special to share with you so i'm here with dash and i have some money to give you it's a little bit different money not something you're going to be used to but it's going to work just as well if not better better in life and in anyway so if you have a smartphone all the book you write up with the money and show you how to turn it into dollars or you can spend it on amazon with a hard time. as you can pass mark are you familiar with the cryptocurrency or imagine this new furtive big oil on the news i'm sure that bitcoin is a virtual currency and dash is a fork up because. it's it's good coin with customer service as i like to say for
5:52 pm
your app store. and the for the dash wallet. it's not that if they have yeah that's the one to tell much ok yes because she said only twelve hundred dollars but i don't really want to know so now we don't have to give them the whole amount we were just going to do this and there's this you know and yeah one that. we swear that dash is more cutting edge than that reference so now we have this and it went to. his and he just used his device to capture that and capture this oh no i have your public address and i'm just. a year already received it and so they are here. and if you want to turn it into something else but cashell. rose this a big. deal gladly take it off your hands this is two thousand nine hundred
5:53 pm
sixty seven dollars and thirty nine cents and the letter was an installation and some cheap oh yeah. we want to come true we're excited that desh is heart is you know of this very spirit you know to want to just like say to people and make a difference make that opportunity become reality directly with folks i've been feeding homeless people every month for over a year and with dash they give me a certain allowance each month that's how this kind of came about as we turned the thing the homeless into helping hurricane victims and when we announced it like hey we got a few thousand bucks here is going to go down there and help a few people and suddenly people from all over the place started sending us deshon because and then the next they got to sixty thousand dollars so no i'm going to have to help a bunch more people. what it awful just to get very hand back late it's like that
5:54 pm
of all the not over. so it's really a great blessing and we really do appreciate it more and there's people that lost more than what we did that it's still it's still hard counting todd. a lot further . from the dash to what you guys are doing i'm grateful a desk to have this position. god bless you i really appreciate it thank you see you. texas is in the books in our heroes have been humbled by the resiliency they've seen from these everyday americans and with the help of danny and dash they've been able to bring some much needed relief to be spent. if you'd like to donate to the families featured in the separate sewed skin either of these q.r. codes here using your dash while on the next stop of the pilgrimage steven finds me . you know our heroes get acquainted with a monumental piece of history that's. what is this i love it
