By the way, RKW has a new book out about his work at the Homeless Shelter. I have a copy and I highly recommend it. You can find it on his web site or on the sidebar of my other blog.

Another Flood

Those who went on the trip last year will well remember the "flood" we had in the ladies trailer. Well .... I just spoke to Barry (the missionary there) and he was in the middle of cleaning up after and fixing yet another water line break.

It took several of us shop-vacing for a few hours to get all the water up and then it took quite a while for the carpet to dry out - and that was in the heat of summer. Now they are out there by themselves in the cold trying to fix it. Keep them in your prayers! I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to get the trailer fixed up nicely only to have the water line break and flood it.

He also sent word that the backpacks are VERY MUCH appreciated! He said that all the kids have their backpacks when they get on the bus every day and that they get a lot of use out of them. He said those backpacks are probably the most appreciated thing we do! It however is not the most important thing we do, but it's nice to know they are appreciated.
