"Preach the gospel everyday; if necessary, use words."
St. Francis of Assisi

Another scorcher today with a high of 97. I am looking forward to not talking about the weather being so hot. Today being Friday, it our day to focus on all things non home repair. Fridays are a chance to assist local agencies and visit with friends.

Today we had three different activities. One group went to St. Vincent DePaul to continue the task of organizing and sorting clothes. A second group headed back to Itmann to continue work on the school house. Today's big accomplishment there was putting a back door in where a window once was. The place is getting closer and closer to UGWA and Groundworks getting to move into the space.
Later in the afternoon a group of volunteers went to Mullens Manor to play banana bingo and give manicures. The crowd started out small, but by the end of the time it was hopping and all the banana's were given away.

For dinner we had a combo of yummy never been seen before food and a smorgasbord of leftovers. The "new" food included rice and beans, as well as pork. For dessert there were many options: banana bread, ice cream cake and a fresh dump cake. Who says we don't eat well here????

The final reflection for the week focused on on family. Using the idea how strong and important families seem to the people in West Virginia, we were asked to reflect on our own families and what we were grateful for in our families.
