Today was an amazing day and something really special to be a part of.
We started the morning off with a prayer circle which Carlos, who is in charge of where we are staying led us in a prayer to protect all workers on the job site. It really started our early morning off on a relaxing positive note before we headed to work.
So far I can say this experience has been beyond rewarding. I learned so many new tasks that I never thought I could have completed but with the team work at the job site, I am convinced that we can complete anything together.
When we began our journey today on the job site the house was missing parts of the roof and had no siding or doors. By the time we left the roof was completed and siding started to go up on the exterior which looks amazing.
I am looking forward to continue creating bonds with cadets that I had not had prior to this. Being thrown into a situation of putting your priorities aside to focus on something much bigger and meaningful is very eye opening.
Over only just a day on the job I have become so much more grateful for everything that I have and am beyond excited to continue giving back and improving someone else’s way of life.
The next 10 days will only continue to be more rewarding!
