We hope you are all happily settling in to your new/old lives at home! We miss you here and wanted to send you an update from Las Canas. We completed the bottle houses and the family of 5 moved in! Slow but sure progress; we finished up walls and taught newcomer students to tackle problems. The work you brought to the community truly helped us in continuing this work… what a wonderful way to spend 10 days!
You all were able to bring individual personality to our situations. Whether braiding hair or playing basketball, there was opportunity for social interaction from all sides. As we worked through figuring out our group dynamic your thoughtful actions shone through. You showed us the power you have to analyze your situation and respond in an appropriate and impactful way. Whether we were figuring out work strategies or enjoying a piña colada at the beach you all managed to adapt and bring some laughter with you.
Our family turned out to have true character. Remember how we all climbed a mountain? Or how we collaborated to entertain the little ones? You each found a strength to bring to our table; we hope you can remember that feeling and carry it with you no matter where you may be.
We are here; reach out if you need anything!
Thank you all!
