Industrial Strength DIY

Grimsby 2016 HANDS Team:

The 35 plus degree day was made up of digging holes and tying rebar. The women mostly stuck with the rebar job,  as it had a kind of crafty feel to it. 

The men, plus the very hardy hermina, dug holes... I'll let you guess what kind of feel that had.

Peter and Trudy our gracious and hardworking hosts picked us up in the morning to bring us to the new job site. This is their 5th school project this season! A hot lunch (Kentucky fried chicken-esque) with rice n beans n beets was delivered by Lester. 

Quitting time came far too soon...felt like we just got here! 

Back to Nemiah Center for a cold trickle and some yummy supper.

Tomorrow we will pick right up from where we started.

Looking forward to a good day.

Bless the work of our hands Lord, and thank you for a good day!

Hope everyone had a good day today! Those are some nice looking holes :o). By the looks of it Pastor Syd is in the lead. I know a couple of guys there are good at making cement to fill those holes up with. Thanks for the update Donna, we continue to pray for you and the team as you bless and are blessed by the people of Nicaraugua. Take care

Those ARE some fine looking holes. If I ever need any, I'll know who to call. (I think that I'd prefer pouring concrete). Stay cool, have fun, be a blessing.
