All Women = All Work

Yes indeed -- for the first time in our 4 years plus of coordinating volunteers with homeowners we now have a team of ALL WOMEN!!!! They arrived for orientation early this morning and were raring to go!
We have them working in 2 homes, Mariano's and Walter's.
You can see that all of them are painting! Walter had 3 women (was more than thrilled to have women working -- at age 92! ) They managed to paint the entire interior of his home. The kitchen is a beautiful yellow and the rest a soft tan. They even learned how to paint the ceilings!
The rest of the women were at Mariano's doing the same thing. You can see the very bright and happy colors the children selected for their rooms! Both Mariana and Sylvia will be sharing the room you see, hot pink with purple walls and a wall shelf in bright lime green! Absolutely beautiful! The kitchen is now "Fabulous Red" , Maria's favorite color. The family room is primed and ready for tomorrow and the bathroom is a wonderful tan that matches the incredible tile work Mariano did. They will be returning tomorrow to see just how far they can get.
Walter's group will be going to Paul and Linda's to help them get things organized and in order since their official "construction" was completed today! What an amazing kitchen and bath! Now they need help getting everything out of their family room and bedroom so they can get back to living life! These women are more than ready!
It's awesome to have teams again! The month of August was nearly blank -- the heat just too much. Now that fall is nearly here and we have temps holding in the mid to high 80s it's once again perfect timing for teams to return and the blessings to continue pouring all along this little community of San Leon.
Be sure and stay tuned as things are happening, God is at work and the blessings are growing and growing!
Until next time . . . be blessed. Susan and Monty
