Omar Too!

Another new intern, Omar Munoz has arrived to help with our relief efforts in Galveston and beyond. Omar is a recent Grinnell College graduate, making the total of Grinnellians on our staff stand at 3 now. Maggie is a 2007 grad and Josie is a soon-to-be senior.

Omar is a native of Los Angeles, CA, and will be spending much of the summer here in Galveston. He's already putting in some long days leading crews, and we're excited to have him here.

Right now we are working with two groups totally 35 people. One group of 25 is from Trinity Episcopal in Longview, Tx, and they are taking their first mission trip in 25 years. This group may have been a little inexperienced to start, but they know how to work and do it well. (And they feed us pretty well, too). We hope they come back.

The other group is a youth group from Christ Church in Nashville, Tn. They have also put in several long work days, and we hope to see them again in the future.

Work is going well and we're starting to pick up the pace for summer. Please let us know if you are planning any Fall trips, we're trying get some groups on the books!
