July 15 - Mission E4 Sower project
This month, reason we are in Massachusetts, is because we signed up to volunteer at Mission E4 in Hubbardston, about 1 1/2 hours west of Boston. This mission is to train (E4=Ephesians 4, equipping the saints) young people to serve in Haiti. Our work here was mainly painting the outside of a large dormitory, dismantling some steelwork used for mounting solar panels, taking care of the vegetable garden and installing a new sink and refrigerator in one of the dorm rooms. Working with us were Bob and Karen Lovell and Stan and Carlie Buttrick.
Patty enjoyed making colorful bookmarks with scriptures. And don't you love this sign?
July 27 - Dragonfly
This one posed for me.
July 27 - Living Stones Foundation
We saw the dragonfly above while at the Living Stones Foundation site. Went with the Lovells and the Buttricks - Sowers we were workign with at Mission E4. Story here: a man started carving scripture into stone. All of the sculptures were made from rejected stone from quarries (some imperfections making them unsalable) .
These are just some of the stones. Many more.
July 28 - Another dragonfly
This one was on the truck, and didn't move for a long time.
