Yes, we've been back in this area since January 18. But before here we spent a bit of time near Corpus Christi. Judy, what are these?
We've completed our second week of volunteering with two weeks to go. One project is some painting and renovating at a local mission.
Outside of the building is getting a good facelift.
Some of our ladies made new curtains for the inside. (Not me - I don't sew. If Leonard needs a button replaced, he does it.)
On January 21 the group helped celebrate Leonard's birthday. HOORAY! Finally old enough for Medicare!
You might remember the dear family we worked with last year. The 6 of them lived in this small trailer. They have recently moved into a much larger house trailer. Yesterday this trailer had to be moved from the property it was on or $200.00 more paid to the property owner. So on our day off, Leonard, the 2nd oldest son in the family Jose and I moved the trailer. All tires had to be aired up. It was quite the challenge but we got 'er done!
This week coming we will work on getting some furniture for Nohemi and her five beautiful children. They moved into their new home about a week ago and there was not one piece of furniture in it. We did take a bed and dresser and small end table to it yesterday also.
The entire family made us feel us good. When they saw us they all came running with hugs. Nohemi kept telling us in her broken English that she missed us. Makes every mile we traveled to get here worthwhile.
