First of all, as I mentioned in the previous entry, it was a rush getting ready for these guys. Things were’t quite finished when they came in, but they were really good sports about it all. The night we got in there were no doors on the buildings, only two toilets working, only a few lights working, and no screens on the windows (this one is still to be resolved). Most of the guys stayed up in the office, which was transformed into a pretty close-quarters bunkhouse. It was an adventure, but we did it.
The team helped us finish the wiring the 1st house and start it in the 2nd house, they put in a water filtration system, finished digging a septic tank, set up our generator, finished the rafters for the 2nd house, put the 2nd roof up, and a score of other jobs. Everyone worked so hard with such great attitudes.
We want to say thanks to all you guys who came and worked so hard. The work you did really pushed us ahead. It was great to renew old friendships, create some new ones, and see your heart to serve. Thanks for all your flexibility as we pulled things together. You’re all welcome to come back soon.
