Cerwin’s youngest sister Doris, from Minnesota, and Mother had a delightful time when Doris spent a week (plus) in Pennsylvania while her husband was in Grenada preaching at a week-long crusade. (Doris doesn’t do well with that kind of heat and humidity, so Bob suggested that she spend the week with her Mother.)
Doris took Mother outside in her wheelchair almost every day. They had meals together, visited Mother’s friends who live at Landis Homes, and saw the peacocks and swans.
Since the weather turned warm, we try to get Mother outside as often as possible.
This week our granddaughter Lydia is with us, so yesterday we had lunch in the courtyard outside the café.
Lydia is spending the summer going to work camps in various places.
She and her group spent the first ten days in the Dominican Republic – painting a church and interacting with the locals. From there she went to Americus, Georgia, where she and another group served at Koinonia Farms – working in the bakery and weeding the blueberry patch. Her next work camp was in New Orleans where they worked in the ninth ward (Hurricane Katrina area) – helping in a garden and building a aquaculture system.
She is here until July 5 when she flies to North Fort Myers, Florida, to work with ECHO. After that she will visit her parents in Maine and come back to Pennsylvania before flying to Canon City, Colorado, to work at New Horizons Ministries.
After her summer work camps, she will go back to school in September and continue her college studies in Brunswick, Maine.
Back in our yard, the daisies are in bloom and adding a lot of beauty.
