We managed to put up the walls and tack on the roof in very windy conditions. Our teen volunteers were determined to get that roof on and the house is painted beautiful Canada Red!
We stopped work early today so we could put together care packages of flour, semolina, oil, and 2 types of beans and rice.
Once the packages were complete, we drove off-road passing a dump until we came to a migrant camp. The kids saw us first and started waving and hollering at us! They ran on ahead calling out to the others. Everyone played with the kids: soccer, ring-around-the-rosie and many piggy-back rides. The camp has no working toilets and water is delivered. Fences are made with whatever material they have or can be found and many houses have tarps covering their roofs. I am reminded that it makes a difference where you are born and it determines so much... We, have much to do, and much to be thankful for...
