Kaylee: I personally feel like I’ve learned a lot this week. On the first work weekend I worked in the pantry, and I ended up working by myself on Sunday. I underestimated how long it would take me to set up the salad bar, and they opened the doors before I was finished. The hungry […]

As we sit in the Joshua building today, waiting to go to our Pause Family houses, then onto the Night of Remembrance, the same thing is on all of our minds, but in so many different ways.

Well here we are, nearly seven months after we started Joshua, with less than two weeks left in the building. We have been dealing with some jet lag from Israel, but that has been helpful in getting us up early. We got to have the weekend off, to rest and work on homework. Since it […]
