Wow.  It has been a long, but great day.  We are exhausted.

During the day, our worksites looked similar to yesterday.  Adults and college students stay put at the three sites throughout the week, and the teens are rotating through all three.

After our workday, we split into groups again.  Some people handed out bags of groceries to low-income neighborhods, and others prayer-walked through the city.

From there, we met at one of our sites for the graduation celebration.  This was an awesome event.  Three different families graduated tonight and it truly was a privilege to share this moment with them.  After hearing testimonies, stories, and whatever else they had to say, we were able to ask the residents and graduates any questions that we had about their past or homelessness in general.  We had a great discussion with them.

On the way home, we sang our hearts out and had a fun time of fellowship.  Marvin Gaye may or may not have been involved.  Enjoy some pics.  Also, our muffler situation has been contained.  Booyah.

Shelvie and Alexa are great at pretending to do work when cameras are around

Kayla spent her morning staining a deck.  Also, she said “you’re not putting this on the website are you?” right after I took this picture.

More staining

And even more staining

This is the celebration- people are just hanging out here

These are some of the residents and graduates sharing insights about their experiences

Tomorrow, I will have our third group of kids with me tomorrow- so if you havent seen pictures of your babies yet- they will be on tomorrow night!
