If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. – Aftrican Proverb
Today was another great day for the Aurora PVs. We finished up the painting site and the home owners were very happy with the results and are planning on continuing the painting over the weekend. After a PBJ lunch by the river, this crew went to St. Rita’s church in the afternoon to help clean windows and clean the chapel.
The other crew pretty much finished up the bathroom site today and it looks fantastic. They were treated to another wonderful lunch from the family. Tomorrow we need to make a quick stop there to make sure all the sink plumbing is working as it should and we should be done!
While we were all working away today, the crock pot was working away at home cooking a yummy and comforting pot roast for us to share for dinner. For dessert we were treated to a delicious tres leches mocha cake.
With our full bellies, it was time to reflect! Tonight’s reflection was on our motivation to serve and more particular our motivation to become PV Wolunteers and to continue to volunteer. We also shared something from today.
Tonight’s movie selection was The Good Lie, a movie about the Sudanese Lost Boys’ journey from orphans in Sudan to a refuge camp in Kenya to trying to settle in the United States. The movie tied in nicely to our week and our experiences. The quote at the beginning of this post is the quote that ended the movie. It seemed so apropos for the movie and the PV experience.
