"It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity." Gandhi

The heat finally broke today and we enjoyed a nice sunny, but warm day. We had groups continue at the two sites in Mullens, replacing drywall and finishing the steps. Great progress was made! We were also able to finish up the painting and powerwashing site that we started yesterday. The work was completed pretty quickly, but that left plenty of time to visit with the homeowner and her aunt.

We also picked up another kid for both the soccer and craft camp. We are very excited to slowly be building up the camps and the kids and the parents seem to be enjoying the opportunity to come. In the craft camp today they started building their cigar box guitars and they were thrilled!

Tonight in PV land we were treated to a taco and baked potato bar that was scrumptious. The meal was topped off with brownie sundaes and all the fixings.

We were led in a beautiful reflection tonight about the different attributes that we all find important in our PV experience (ie., community, compassion, love, acceptance, etc) and how we can apply those at home and keep a bit of our PV experience alive.
