It has been hard to find time to post because we are moving from early morning until late at night so, The pictures here will reflect yesterday and today.
Yesterday one of the highlights was working on the Habitat house. We ate a late lunch at a local restaurant called “Colors”. They employ disadvantaged people in the Detroit community and teach them culinary and restaurant management skills. Our meal was delicious and we enjoyed getting to know the waiter.
We arrived back at the hotel a little before midnight Thursday night and then were back on the shuttle buses at 7am today. We headed to an impoverished community in Detroit. Many of the homes and businesses were boarded up and it was obvious that these people had been though a lot. We served in at the Matrix Community Center which is housed in a former Lutheran church building. We learned of their community development programs and also painted their fellowship hall and a bathroom. We felt as if we made a difference today.
In the way to the mass gathering tonight we are an early dinner at American Coney Island restaurant- a Detroit landmark.
We’re looking forward to what God has in store for us tomorrow!
