Day 9 - Displayed Wall Map of the United States
Some 380 refugees arrived today! We also had an increased number of volunteers from around the country. I found and displayed on the wall a map of USA. Refugees were eager to see where they are and where they would be going. I helped a volunteer give a vocabulary lesson on currency and parts of the body. There is good teamwork between staff and volunteers. During our lunch break, we found a local market and bought fresh produce. The growing season is long in southern Texas.
