These wonderful words were on the outside of the kitchen wall at Hesed House where the PVs planned, prepared and served lunch. The volunteers made a great meal of pork loin, mashed potatoes, gravy, squash, salad and dessert. It seemed to go over well with guests and when we got to sample at the end, it was delicious!
After we finished up with the meal we headed across the street to the warehouse where donations are sorted and then distributed. We painted a bit, set up shelving units and sorted through some clothes. We will continue with this project tomorrow.
In the morning we were also able to put the finishing touches on the bathroom site from the day before. Only a few tweaks needs to be done to make sure all the plumbing was correct and we were done in time to go join the others in serving at Hesed House.
After we wrapped up in the afternoon we spent some community time together. We first went to Banana Split, an ice cream shop that has been around for more than 30 years and then went to Red Oaks park for a hike along the river.
Because we ate ice cream so late and we are close to ending the week we had leftovers for dinner after putting out cheese, crackers, apples and grapes for munching.
The focus of reflection tonight was on perception, how we enter into situations with perceptions about how it is going to turnout. We shared a perception we came into the week with and how that has changed during the week.
Tomorrow we wrap up the week spending the day at Hesed House. Check in tomorrow for a full report.
