Last day on the site...
Bittersweet, but quite rewarding.
Steve, Mo, Tommy and Chris went to another site for half the day and worked on baseboards . Chris was excited because it was something he could use back at home. They met Dave, a supply sargeant in the Navy, who volunteers with Habitat on the weekend. Eventually, he might be stationed in San Diego, so who knows, we might see him back at home.
Dave joined us for lunch, which we bought from Bozo's and took back to the site. We had lunch all together, including Brittney. Brittney was doing her first day of volunteer hours and had never worked with tools before. Although she expressed a bit of apprehension at first, within a couple of hours, she was confident and capable. She's raising a beautiful 1 year old daughter, who we met later in the day, and we enjoyed her company.
After finishing our work, we got to pray for the homes and area. Some of us wrote on the studs with verses or words of encouragement. It's very moving having worked on a home, and then being able to pray for the future owners. They really are beautiful homes, and we hope the families that move in will have a good life with them.
We'll be going to Mosaic tomorrow, to worship with Brad, Paul and Denise.
