"Sometime in your life, hope that you might see one starved man, the look on his face when the bread finally arrives. Hope that you might have baked it or bought or even kneaded it yourself. For that look on his face, for your meeting his eyes across a piece of bread, you might be willing to lose a lot, or suffer a lot, or die a little, even." Daniel Berrigan

Today was another hot, humid and steamy day, with the temperatures in the upper 90's and the heat index at 105. Our mantra, drink lots of water, take lots of breaks and quit early....

There were two home repair sites today as well as the basketball camp. We were able to finish the site over in Lillydale. The place looks great with some new floors, new tiling, a new door and part of a ceiling replace. Great work was done by the PVs and the home owners seem happy with it. What more could we ask for, right?

The second home repair site was continuing to work on the ramp in Hanover, as well as finish up some ceiling tiles inside the bathroom. The ramp is coming along, with only about 35 feet of framing left to finish and the deck boards are almost caught up to the framing. It will be a beautiful ramp when it is finished.

Basketball camp went great today. We picked up kids both in the morning session and in the afternoon session. In all now, there are 16 kids participating in the camp and we couldn't be more thrilled.

By the time dinner rolled around everyone was hot, tired and hungry. Luckily, we were having taco's so everyone was able to munch on them to their hearts content. They were delicious!

The focus of reflection was on our and everyone else's extra-ordinariness,using CS Lewis' Mere Christianity as a prompt. WE were asked to share a moment in the day when we were extraordinary and when we witnessed someone else being extraordinary.
