Our intent was to help clean up the glass, wipe off and vacuum up the pepper residue, and take all their clothes and linens to the laundramat for cleaning. This project was much more involved than we...
Thoughts and Notes from Mark Twain Elementary
Redeemer Friends, It is not often that I am at a loss for words! I think the events in the past two weeks have left me overwhelmed, in a great way. Gretchen and I knew pretty quickly that we were in over our heads, but what a good place to be. Redeemer led the way and I just tried to keep up. It was good to begin with the Easter egg hunt. Our community has never had an egg hunt at the park,...

Human Trafficking Resources
Today, millions of lives around the world are in the grip of injustice. More children, women and men are held in slavery right now than over the course of the entire trans-Atlantic slave trade: Millions toil in bondage, their work and even their bodies the property of an owner. Trafficking of humans generates profits in excess of 32 billion dollars a year for those who, by force and deception,...

We had another good day of working. Today we had a little rain and drizzle for most of the day, but that didn’t slow us down. One team managed to finish the stucco in the house where they worked yesterday, while the other two teams finished pouring the floor in the two houses where they were working. We then spent the afternoon moving supplies (sand and small rocks) to areas near the two...
