Driving through the hilly green terrain of Arkansas with a church, a trailer park, or woods spotted at every intersection, sharing our family values and memories in the car, pumping each other up for the next day. The relationships built working with the restore site workers was unbelievable and inspiring because they came from such humble backgrounds and they work to make lives better for others through building.
