Stanley Park Team '09!

For four years and running, we've hosted a team from Stanley Park Community Church in Kitchener, Ontario; Canada. This has become less like hosting a team and more like a visit from friends. This year was no exception. They have have been so faithful that they even have people in Modesto they go see from the friendships they've formed in previous visits. Here's few pics and highlights of their week with us...



This was our first group to host in a new location...they were small enough to fit in the Haddon house at New Hope's new property (still very much under construction).




But the guys seemed fine with our "casual" digs.



On a previous trip, the guys had connected with Ken here and helped him patch up holes in the roof of his trailer. Ken is a shut in due to illness and lives alone in a trailer park off South 9th St. This year, the awning covering his front porch was all but gone and with the rainy season on it's way, the guys set to work.



You can't keep Danny away from a project : )




It was an engineering marvel and just in time. Of course, we spent a lot of time on 9th Street with coffee, chili and BBQ, just doing what we do, spending time with people...






They spent time in the hobo shack...



Lots of taco trucks including the TACO BUS!



Yosemite...



And of course...



Thanks guys...see you again next year!
