|By Friday the fridge often overflows with leftovers.|
Hank and I stayed till 7:30 a.m.--each of us taking an air mattress--as the two overnight monitors. He is a member of the host church and has thrown himself into the fray enthusiastically. He was up before 6 a.m. and started the coffee, for which I was grateful.
In the morning I chatted with Angelica. She's still in the program and spoke fondly of the stew that I made the last time. Flattery will get her everywhere.
I'm hoping that she will have found housing by the next time we're on duty in March, but if not my stewpot will be ready.
