On Saturday we said goodbye to our Session 1 summer vols (miss you all already!) and got to work cleaning the house and grocery shopping to get ready for Session 2. Luckily for us, one of the summer vols, Amanda, decided to stay for both sessions which is going to be a huge help. Amanda first came to the Manna House in March on a UGA Spring Break trip. She fell in love with the kids in the library, and the adults in Charlie's English class, so she is back again. It has been really nice for us having Amanda here, first of all because we love her, and second of all because she makes a great leader for the group. You can read her final blog post from Session 1 and her advice for the Session 2 vols here.
So most of Session 2 arrived Sunday evening, and spent the day on Monday touring Quito and getting adjusted to the altitude. One of the vols had some trouble with flights and will be arriving on Wednesday. The girls are excited to be here and get involved in the programs. You can read about their experience first hand following the Session 2 blog here.
A big thank you to Molly, Joanna, Tucker, Brooke, Suzie and Amanda for all of your help during the past month and welcome to Ecuador Session 2!
