We are half way through! With the heat and humidity, I feel like we’ve been here for at least a week already. Judging by the amount of work we’ve accomplished, it seems like we’ve been here a couple weeks; your students are amazing workers!
Day 2 included much of the same work as before, and we have been completing jobs and looking for new ones. We had some light rain off and on, but it didn’t slow us down one bit.
We’ve met some wonderful people: Judith has lived in Clendenin for 40+ years, has three kids and five grandkids and loves to share her story. Pastor Melvin has served all throughout the area, been in Clendenin for 11 years at his current church, and works just as hard as people half his age, although his wife would like him to slow down a bit. Be sure to ask your students about the people they met, I’m sure you’ll hear some great stories.
Blessings from WV,
