This was my first full day with the team from Wade Baptist (Mississippi). Their project for the week is to build a “Little Yellow House” in Jasmine (a shanti town half way up the mountain – about 4000 ft above sea level). As they assembled all of the panels yesterday, the men spent the day hauling buckets of sand, concrete, and gravel up the hill as the trucks couldn’t make it all the way to the build site. Unfortunately, it was “Costa Rica Hot” today. In the afternoon, the team mixed cement in the rain and poured all of the footers.
I’m really starting to wear out.
This morning, the women went to a local elementary school and facilitated English classes and did some arts and crafts. After lunch, they headed over to Jorge’s new church to get some more painting done.
Tonight, Bonnie and I got to do “God the Potter” again… I really love doing that presentation! Especially since it comes out different every single time. :)
