"The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?" But...the good Samaritan reversed the question: "If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?" Martin Luther King,Jr.

The weather today was just about perfect, warm but with a nice cool breeze. The afternoon got a little warmer, but the breeze seemed to always be around.

Today we finished up our home repair site out in Indian Creek, the first of the summer. Not only were the volunteers that were there treated to fresh biscuits (and the directors as we happened to stop by at just the right time :) ) but a whole batch was prepared by the home owner and one of our younger volunteers to bring back to the school for everyone to enjoy. Wonderful work was done by everyone at the site throughout the week, we couldn't have asked for a better first site of the summer program.

Two home repair crews also headed out to Lilydale to do a little work on the homes of some old friends of the PVs. All the volunteers new and old, were greeted with a welcoming hug and huge smiles. A lot of terrific work was done, but more importantly a lot of great time was spent together.

The third group headed out to soccer camp for another great day with the kids. You couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to play soccer. I'm not sure who had more fun, the kids or the volunteers.

After a busy day, hungry PVs feasted on a hearty meal of meatloaf, baked potatoes, bean salad and delicious home made rolls made by our cook. To top if off, for dessert the biscuits made earlier were served with peaches and ice cream. Yum yum.

All the PVs gathered in the evening for reflection were greeted by our youngest PV with a beautiful reflection on finding God in the moments of the day. We went around the room and shared where we each saw God that day.
