Another day in paradise

Lots more accomplished today, most of the cement is now poured. Some hard working team members have been mixing the cement with sand and shovel and sending it in buckets or barrels to its destination.   Classroom walls have been primed and were all but finished today with their final coat of paint.  Each wall had to be sanded down, swept (yes, we swept the walls), sweep out the room, spackled, sanded, primered, then painted.  So, to have much of the painting complete left us with quite an accomplished feeling.  A very moving time at lunch today where the team broke out in spontaneous song... songs to God.  Then, the pastor and his wife shared with us their gratitude for our work and told us the history of this location.  It's taken 7 years to get to this place where they will have a building with walls, a roof and electricity for the community children.  Not too long ago they were meeting under a mango tree.  Thank you for your prayers and your support.  All team members are in good health and in great spirits.  Teamwork and relationships abound.  Until tomorrow...
