First do what is necessary, then what is possible, and before long you will be doing the impossible.    -St. Francis of Assisi.
 
Today was the first day in two years that we had a rain out. We were able to get a couple of hours of work in in the morning, but finally had to give in to the rain. The roof Herndon got about 1/4 of the way done and the painting in Clear Fork was only able to be done for about 20 minutes. However, the work inside continued through the rains.

Tonight was the men's turn to do their traditional dinner of breakfast for dinner. While the food was good, there was an incident of a fire alarm that went off during the cooking of the bacon. We were able to stop the fire trucks from coming and get the alarm off after about 10 minutes of ear piercing sirens.

Some of our first timer young PVs stepped up to lead reflection tonight. They did a very nice reflection about poverty of material things vs. poverty of spirit. They wrapped up the evening with a PV favorite, the new and the good.
