"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."  
Martin Luther King, Jr.

As you have probably noticed, I am a day late posting each day's activities.  It has been a bit of different routine here in the house than up at the school.

The weather has taken a turn toward the HOT!  We have been having temperatures in the 90's with high humidity making the heat index well over 100 degrees. Boy are we missing the air conditioned school right about now....

Several sites were finished up today.  We finished in Glen Rogers, Lilydale, Welch and Glen Fork.  We also started, and finished up, a touch up on the painting at Mt. Grove Baptist Church in Wyco that volunteers worked on back in 2003.  It still looks great!  We also came very close to finishing in Mullens where we cleaned the basement and put in a new ceiling. The high humidity made in impossible for the last coat of mud to drive. Tomorrow will sand and paint and then that site will be done.

We were once again treated to a delicious dinner of pasta and homemade sauce.  Those of you that were here last week know the sauce I am talking about.  Yummy yummy.  For dessert we were introduced to grilled pound cake with peaches and honey on top.  Delicious!

For reflection, the theme was "where is the hope," and we were asked to reflect on and share where we see hope.  It was a beautiful sharing.

Unfortunately, at the end of the night it was time to bid adieu to Dan and Lucy after a wonderful summer with both of them here.  We will miss you guys!
