Mission Accomplished!

war_217The team arrived at Bradley airport Saturday night in good spirits. Some of us were a little tired and sore after 4 hearty days of building houses for HFHMGC (Habitat for Humanity Mississippi Gulf Coast). Many of us learned new skills and made new friends. Working close together on a common project , such as hanging a window or door or installing insulation or building decks and stairs, is rewarding not only for the work accomplished, but you really can get to know people better and appreciate them.

I want to thank all the volunteers who came and provided encouragement to so many folks. The mural of the survivors of Katrina, on the outside of Camp Victor, reminds us of how fortunate we really are.
