Day Nine ~ Latte anyone!

Today was day two of mission work, and the youth had a great time. Our task today was work in a volunteer run cafe called the Lodge Cafe of Bowling Park. Set up to provide training for young people in the local area, this program has just been started as an outreach by a nonprofit called Primetime which is supported by the Diocese of Leeds. DIOSWVA youth worked from 10:00am until 3:00pm making coffee, cooking, serving, and cleaning. The cafe sits on the edge of a large park and the community of Bowling Hills, and with today being unseasonably warm, the cafe was very busy. Later that afternoon, a group of youth from Primetime met us in the park for games & dinner and socialization for a few hours. Since it was such a nice day, we decided to walk the 30 minutes into town to do some shopping until they closed at 8:00, then spontaneously ending up at the ice rink for some skating to cool off from the heat. It was a wonderful day, but we are looking for cooler temperatures for the next few day. The weather has been nice, but without any AC, there is no relief like there is back home.
