Tuesday Evening/Wednesday Morning Part 3

Tuesday Morning Quite Time:
It's the morning of day two and everyone's already moving slower than yesterday. I woke up 5 minutes later today and when I went in the bathroom no one was in there, what a difference a day makes! They said it's going to get up to about 105 today :/. I'm moving a little slower, but it could be because I can already feel that it's hotter out, and I'm still adjusting to the time difference. We are going back to the same house today, and I'm excited about that because I want to finish what I started!!

Phil 3-4

"The secret of success in this life is to realize that the crisis on our planet is much larger than just deciding what to do with your own life. The only work that will ultimately bring good to any of us is the work of contributing to the healing of the world." - Marianne Williams

Wednesday Morning Quite Time:
Yesterday we went back to the same house and continued painting, had to finnish all the cutting in (painting above the base boards and below the crown molding). It was hard and tedious work, but I made it through, though we still didn't finish. For lunch 5 ladies who run a mobile Loaves and Fishes came and provided lunch, it was so neat and fun, typical brown bag stuff! (It was a sandwich, chips, cookies, a piece of fruit, a hard boiled egg, and a bottle of water)
Last night after dinner we (our group) went down to New Orleans in the French Quarter and had Beignets at Cafe Du Monde, they were tasty and it was a fun powdered experience!

Then we walked the streets, saw the Mississippi up close, went to a few shops, down Bourbon St and then came back.

Bourbon St, not really a place you wanna be!
Each group did the prayer walk, which is 7 station that we went to, read some scriptures, talked and than prayed; it was an awesome thing to do, got me thinking about different aspects of my daily walk and how I serve the Lord. How do I show my love for God?
