Day 2-Working with St. James
St James is a church from Pennsylvania, that we've met before while serving here. Today we had the privilege of working side by side with them on site. Our siding and paint crew got to work with them closely. Cindy was a crowd favorite, as she, normally a hair stylist, proved to be one of the most energetic and height-friendly volunteers, climbing to the top levels with Kyle, Bart and Chris.
We continue to understand our role includes exhortation. On the first day, we met several people along our journies, including a homeowner of the house we worked on last year. It's a rare, but beautiful experience. It's hard not to take it personally and be prideful, but we turned around and looked at the house that we saw built in three days by contract laborers, and it helps keep us grounded.
