PPR Mission of Hope 0801

PHOTO PROVIDED Torrential rains and wind didn't stop this North Country Mission of Hope crew from completing the last of eight home shelters the Plattsburgh-based aid organization built in Nicaragua on its summer trip, which ends today. On the roof, are (from left) missioner Joe Aabye, a Nicaraguan youth, missioner Joseph Dedam and another local person who pitched in. In the foreground, looking up, is Courtney Gleason, another mission volunteer.
