Heelllllooooo! With a few members already departed on early morning flights there is a flurry of activity cleaning and packing around our accommodations at a church that hosts United Saints Recovery Project. After 4 days of unbelievable effort from the team we can say there were no major injuries on the job site but the minor cuts, bruises, and blisters are countless.
I can confidently say I haven't seen a group of this size mesh as well as we did right from the first introductions on Sunday night and continue to bond over the week. One of the most impressive sights was the sea of purple on Friday, day #4 of our build, which engulfed the house. As a team, we completed so much work that we impressed our Habitat supervisors Pete and Kelsey, who were awesome!
I really don't think anyone had a full understanding as to what we were about to experience before we arrived, but in true Western form this turned into a trip of a lifetime.
