Photographer's Note

This is an old abandon school building that an inner city outreach group called World Impact purchased for $1000 in St. Louis Missouri. Their plans are to convert the building into a community center for the locals in the area. My wife and I lead a team of college students from Texas to help them in the refurbishing process.

I took this picture because I really feel that it conveys the daunting task that was ahead of them. Here is a girl sweeping a seemingly unredeemable parking lot. By the end the team managed to patch most of the parking lot making it passable for the city inspectors.
