We survived the second day!!

Hamilton HANDS Team:

Everyone woke up refreshed and ready to work this morning.We were all so tired from the day before that we didn't even here the chickens outside our windows at night.  We boarded the bus on time so we could get a full days work done. The first classroom has been parged and the second one 3/4 done. The pails of cement seem to be getting heavier with each day.  It was a little hotter today, but that did not stop anyone from getting so much done.

The food they serve at the school has been excellent. Today we had rice with corn, beef, and potato salad. The women there work hard to keep us well fed and hydrated. Some of the school children made some wonderful crafts for us. They were all so beautiful that it was hard to choose which one we wanted to take home. We are so blessed to be here and work with the dominican people who are always so happy.

The rest of the world celebrates Valentine's Day today and yet it is our privilege to celebrate God's love each and every day.

"And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight...filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ - to the glory and praise of God." Philippians 1:9, 11

May you experience God's love in DR today!

Greetings to John S and Carl VB from the Schuurmans in Oakville! Praying for continued strength to carry the cement, and for ongoing bonding together as a group. Food sounds great! May you see God in everything you do this day.
