Tuesday, March 12, 2013

After a night of hard rains we were blessed with a dry day, although quite a bit cooler than the day before, but dry. With the weather cooperating so far, we have continued our wonderful progress on our ramp and deck. All that we have left is about a third of the ramp and the railings. We should be able to wrap up the project by the end of the day tomorrow.

The PVs have kind of a neat connection to the ladies house that we are working on. First off, we received the site through St. Vincent DePaul, who was informed of the need by the Mullens Ministrial Committee.  On Sunday when we met up with the son to take us out to his mothers house, we realized we knew him. His son took part in the Mullens Soccer Camp this past summer. It is always great when the different parts of our program intersect in many ways.

The students who did come to the home repair site today spent their day with the kids at Head Start. Head Start is always  wonderful opportunity to work one-on-one with the kids, give the teachers a little bit of a break, and in return, with the extra volunteer hours, the Head Start receives extra funding. It really is a win-win for everyone.

We put another sampling of pictures from the home repair site below for your enjoyment.
