"The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own." Benjamin Disraeli

Today we were awakened to rainfall hitting the metal rooftop of the school. While nice to listen to, the rain is not too nice for all our home repair sites since they were all outside. One site was canceled for the day, but the site out in Lilydale went on as there was some indoor work and plenty of opportunity for visiting.

Soccer also went on in the rain. Luckily for the kids and the volunteers it only rained for the first hour out in Mullens, but really, soccer is kind of fun to play in the rain.

We did have an impromptu site in the afternoon, the mail water line going into our rental house in Pineville sprung a leak. After a lot of digging and a little jack-hammering to get to the pipe, the pipe was replaced and water was restored. Yay!

We all feasted on a wonderful and filling meal of spaghetti and meatballs, salad and garlic bread. How could you go wrong with spaghetti, right? It was delicious.

In the evening we gathered for our nightly reflection, this time the reflection focused on what it was that brought us here to WV and why we keep coming back. It is always wonderful to hear what it is that brought people to the PVs.
