"The great end of life is not knowledge but action."  Thomas Henry Huxley

The PVs spent their day at two different sites in the Oceana area. One group continued working on the ramp that was started yesterday. While the project is a big one, they made quite a bit of progress today. The other site in the area was working for a couple. There are several projects to be done at their trailer, but today the crew focused on fixing a leaky porch roof and scraping said porch roof in preparation for painting it tomorrow. Both sites had to endure hot temperatures with little breeze and lots of gnats.

Dinner this evening was a Mexican feast. There was a taco bar with meat, beans and all the fixings as well as Spanish rice on the side. For desert we has a special treat utilizing the home made biscuits that our cook made us, serving berries and whip cream on top. It was absolutely fabulous and refreshing!

Reflection tonight focused on work and how our work is sacred. Several readings were shared around this idea and many reflections were shared.
