Our second day of work and fellowship with some dear ladies made up today.
Once again we divided up into teams to spread the workforce and visitation.
Some photos from yesterday and today at the screen porch project:

And some of the ladies we visited today:

A highlight of today was visiting Sadie. Sadie is a bit of a legend among folks who have worked with WWM. As is the case with so many of these ladies, visiting her today gave us a picture of God's excessive grace buoying a spirit, and enabling her to choose joy, service, and humility in a life that would breed resentment, cynicism, and anger in even the strongest who tries to live by his own strength. Sadie has protected her children from the expectations of failure that have surrounded them due to their race and their neighborhood, and for the past several years, she has nursed a husband who has been severely debilitated by a stroke. Rather than becoming self-involved and bitter, she spends her days ministering to others. The God that Sadie serves is able to open the heart, may we all seek Him! Here's some singing with Miss Sadie:
