It was hot in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, today.
This is a marked change from last year, where we all worried because we didn’t have enough warm weather clothes. That was not a problem today, as we enjoyed the opportunity to dive deeply into the work at hand on the site selected for us by our partners. The second day is always a great day, because we still have energy and zeal, and we know what we’re doing and why. Today, in spite of the heat, was no exception. In fact, we worked so hard that nobody took a lot of photos. Here are a few images of our work.
All in all it was a great day to be together. I need to mention that we were, once again, spoiled in the food department. Our friend Martha served us sloppy joes and brought not one, not two, but THREE Grapefruit pies for lunch. I had a slice of each one just to be fair. Tomorrow I’ll write a little more about the things that we do in the evening and the ways that this time makes the trip so meaningful to all concerned. In the meantime, thanks for your prayers, and keep the family for whom we’re working, as well as our own families, in your prayers.
