Rachel’s blog

On the very first day of volunteering we were assigned a project to work on. Our first project was a lady’s house that had burned down a few months ago to what they think was caused by electrical problems. Not only was her house burned and she lost all her material things, she lost her daughter and dog in the fire as well. It was very hard to look at the house and every room knowing what all happened in the house. What made it even worse is that this lady’s house was just rebuilt by United Saints in 2009 and now it has to be done again. Although we didn’t get to meet the owner of the house it was still really special to be doing this for her. Out of all the jobs we have done this project probably affected me the most and it was good knowing that we are helping her when she has nothing else.
