Time to say Goodbye

The last day is always bittersweet. It is a day where folks are anxious to get some last minute projects done and many are dreading the goodbyes that come.

Many went straight to the roof to continue rolling out the papers and then putting the flashing along the edges. Some continued to run electrical wires inside the house and some walked the site to clean it up and make sure that all the tools made it home with the right folks.

Stephanie, Lance and their dog brought lunch which included this wonderful Orzo salad...we all want the recipie to that one!

After our wonderful lunch, we shared communion inside the house while giving thanks for all the blessings of the week. We shared hugs and goodbyes ahd were on the road by 2:00pm, heading north.

We decided to push through the traffic in Washington (yeah for HOV lanes) which allowed us to arrive in New Cumberland, PA just as the sun was setting. The youth were able to have some pool time before we met for our final community time.

We will be on the road in the morning, hoping to get home in the early evening - will depend on the border crossing back log.

Hard to believe it is over for another year! We look forward to sharing our stories with you in person on April 11, 2010 as part of the services at KUC.

Thank you to Peggy and Tom for your heartfelt letter. We also shared emails from Kate & Richard, Glenda and Naomi.

See you at church on Sunday.
