Another Day at the Stokes' house!

Hello everyone,

Today, the weather was not so good! It was really cold, but as usual NOLA Catalyst make a positive difference in New Orleans every day. As my friend Nate mentioned, we returned today to Stokes' house because we  (Catalyst) group decided to go again and try to finish it. This house is very huge and long ( 2 house combined ) so we started painting were we stopped yesterday ( from north side)  and after long day almost finish it. Rebuild and painting houses together with United Saints (our host) to the most vulnerable people like Stokes' family was a great opportunity for us.  Every morning we wake up with energy and get ready to help out this community. Today, we got a great chances to meet with couple of their neighbors. They came to us to thank us for doing something very beneficial to their neighbor. One of them was a very surprised when we told him that we are from Minnesota.

Also, for the last two days, we had a two great supervisors on this site, Emma and Will. Both they were not only supervisor, but were trainers. "Give a man a fish; you have fed him for a day. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime" (Unknown author). Similarly,  Emma and Will changed us a lot! They equipped us yesterday with knowledge of using power tools, techniques, and latter. For that reason, we didn't need a lot of training today. That's why I believe that today was much easier than yesterday.
