Here is a little glimpse of the dorm rooms that you are assigned. We had a total of about 17 girls in one large section, 1 small section and ONE bathroom. The bunk beds are really quite nice and most of the mattresses are pretty decent. There were only some minor switcharoos going on. I began to miss a MIRROR at this point...the bathroom had a tiny one behind the door...and a window going outdoors which always let in great natural light. :)

|Prepping for Project Prevention. Sorted and bagged food to deliver.|
I obviously did NOT take pictures while on site with the families. But took pictures of our journey of prep and driving. The first 2 deliveries were great. The first lady told her story about how provision just keeps a coming...and how she is off the streets...and having to fight some battles to stay in the home she is at. While we were there, her stove was getting fixed...and many struggles with THAT as well! She was a trip...and I wish her all the best and pray that God continues to provide for her and her kids!!!! The 2nd delivery - the lady spoke only spanish. Thankfully, we did have a wonderful lady with us that understood (not just the dream center girl, but one of our team)...and when we prayed for her as we were leaving - I felt connected in just that every one of us came for a SPECIFIC purpose.

AFTER our busy busy morning, we had lunch at King Tacossss! On the way back, we were just barely a few minutes from there...so we hopped on over....and I forgot to get a picture of the sign...but herez the jukebox...and other signs!!!!
So, we had to HURRY back for our 1pm meetup for our next assignment!!!!
RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESSSSSSSSSSSSS!
I took the role of window washer! It seemed the most fun really. Others took the lemonade stand...and others took the lollipop giveouts! At one point, we also gave out waters too. I had forgotten to take pictures at the beginning because I was having too much fun washing windows and cleaning the smog off. :) But, towards the end here - we washed this shuttle bus. OH YES.
|This guy was HILARIOUS! used the bullhorn a lot of the time, cracked us up!!!!|
I dunno, seemed super fitting for me...and we were done super early too. We still had a lot of time before "bedtime" per say. I really felt great after, and talked to this fabulous girl at the bus stop who had a giant black mohawk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After our walk back....I think we waited for our "dinner time"...and some of us decided it was going to be a GET OUT kind of nite because of all the down time!!!!!!
The families were heading out to Hollywood Blvd and potentially the Observatory. So, yes I headed out too! I was definitely wanting to see the theater where all the signings and hands/feetprints are. That was totally a bonus for me as I was just going along for the ride. ;) So here is the highlights:
then, we remembered OH YEA the observatory! Itz freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
So I don't have a lot to share for that picture wise - but I can tell you it is worth staying a little longer to explore. LOL!!! We stayed, but before we knew it was closing in 30 minutes. :) We drove up the hill, couldn't find parking and then drove back down...and parked on the wrong side of the road near the bottom of that first hill. GOOD TIMESSSSSSSSSS!
I'll post picture albums soon, it gives a clearer picture of each day.
