Day 3 on the site...

Today started again under cool skies… we did a bit of work on the site then stopped for a hearty breakfast… There was quite a bit of help on the site today so the sisters made sure to prepare sufficient food for everyone…


Just as we got back to work on the site and the breakfast dishes began to get washed a random downpour stopped just about all work… we all took shelter under whatever roof we could get under to wait out the storm.


The time to start VBS came and went and many children came down to the area in the pouring rain waiting for the program to start. We ended up finding a nice covered porch in the neighborhood that would house the kids.


Again 80 little ones joined us for a fun time of song, dance, bible verses, and crafts… They praise God with everything they’ve got… it is so cute to watch and take in.

Back on the site the trusses went up one by one and more dirt got moved one bucket at a time to fill in low spots around the church.
Noon came and under full sun we had a delicious fried fish lunch
Once we were full there was more work to be done around the church…
Some continued with the never ending septic tank...
Half the roof got nailed down onto the trusses...
Somehow a few just stood around pretending to look important…
Brother Uriel did however give us the thumbs up for a day’s good work…
We hit the road for the hotel feeling great about the day’s accomplishments.
After a time of rest and cleaning up, we all met in the lobby to go for dinner.
They actually feed us very well down here. Tonight we had gringas which are like chicken quesadillas with no cheese… everyone was happy with the meal
Well almost everyone…
We got to go for ice cream tonight which was a cool treat on a hot humid night. The team is enjoying each others company and delighting in what God is doing at the church and within our hearts…
