Monday afternoon, the group went and worked at the Habitat Restore.  We've heard of double outhouses - but this might be a bit too much:

After breakfast Tuesday morning the group talked with our two summer interns, Maud and Brianna.  We discussed what they are doing this summer and college expectations in general.

Tuesday afternoon the group went to Sonnenberg Village near Kidron.  The Village is being rebuilt in a field moving period buildings into place and organizing the 5 acre plot into a little village and farm.  After we assisted in a number of projects we talked with an Amish man, Fred about their culture.

Wednesday morning after breakfast the group played with Maud and Brianna in the Drum Circle that they are establishing after breakfast.  They also did wall stretches?  Joan and Sally talked to the group about the breakfast program.

Before lunch we took the official NSM picture of the group wearing the NSM t-shirts.





In the afternoon the group went to People to People Ministries and helped to sort donated items.



For dinner Thursday night, Suzanne had the group out to her house for a picnic and "the first bon fire of the year"

At dark we sat outside behind the church and talked about the homeless.  During our talk we were able to talk to three homeless people.
