Workday two: a variety of tasks
Day two of work for this diverse team. The construction team members are chugging along-- more work on the most recent house in Blanchard, and a new plan for the inner courtyard of the PID clinic. They have started working on roofing more of the waiting area and putting in underground piping so that rainwater will drain from the planter in the center to the outside of the clinic. The yoga ladies traveled to the local Blanchard orphanage and gave a morning and afternoon yoga/arts and crafts class that included singing and small treats for the kids, most of whom are disabled physically or mentally. They seemed to love the yoga and activities, as well as the one-on-one playful interaction with the yoga instructors. The medical (and dental!) staff continued to see dozens of appreciative patients, including the 4 or 5 PID employees who took advantage of Linda's dental cleanings. In each of the various works that this team is doing, the compassion of their service does not go unnoticed.
