"My life is my message." Mahatma Gandhi

The West Virginia portion of the PV Summer Program is officially complete. For the last day, we all headed to Mullens to work with UGWA and do bug counting, collecting. We were able to do samples in three different locations in and around Mullens. One area turned out to be fine and another, not so great and will need some work. The day turned out to be one of the hottest of the summer, capping off the hottest summer in West Virginia in 75 years.

After coming home from the bug monitoring, everyone pitched in to help get the house ready to close up for a few months. Instead of dirtying a bunch of dishes and creating leftovers, we ended up treating everyone to pizza.

We wrapped up the evening with a closing reflection, asking each of us to share a person or an event that left an imprint on our hearts.

As we close this portion of the summer, we want to thank everyone that came and spent time with us, or sent prayers and good thoughts our way. A lot of wonderful work was done, but more importantly many lives were touched including ours.
