Mel was a plumber in Alberta, Canada, who learned about the difficult situation we had with the plumbing in the boy’s wing of the Children’s Home at a family reunion.  He immediately expressed a desire to come down and help us.  Two weeks later he was killed in a tragic accident.  Twelve of his plumbing colleagues, friends, and family members got together to make his dream of service come true. Our new friends from Alberta, Canada departed today having accomplished their mission and more – for they had installed all the remaining plumbing in the center apartments for Mami Verlene and the Home Parents, as well as beautifully finishing off the bathrooms in the Boy’s Wing complete with tiling the shower stalls and floors. During their stay they brought a wonderful sense of camaraderie with nightly hymn-sings accompanied by guitars.
