Another great day!

Hope 3 HANDS Team:

We headed to the school for work this morning and found the students assembled for their year end closing ceremonies. It was awesome to see a large group of children gathered around the flag pole and their Head master Petros conducting the closing ceremony for 2015.

We then went to our building site and learned of the day's work. We were divided into 3 groups, Nico helped to finish laying the top bricks on a wall. Others sorted and carried bricks and the majority got their first lesson in parging. This is a task that we have not had any experience in. It started pretty slow and a little rough, but we soon learned the basics of this job.

It was an extremely warm morning followed by a shower that lasted for close to an hour in the afternoon. That made the temperature a lot more reasonable.

Later we took a trip to the market in town and the first timers on our team had an opportunity to take the sights, smells and sounds of the local market in Lundazi.

It was a good day!!

Praying that your ministry efforts are blessed by our Father. The temperatures are high where you are, but here in Stratford the weather is mild as well. No snow and for this weekend it will be two digits. Unreal for December, but it makes for easy driving and no worries about cleaning our driveway:)

Enjoy your time there and may blessings abound as you serve our Lord far away from all of us. You are missed and I'm counting the days to have my hubby back home again:)

Love, many prayers, sweet memories of all of you and hugs sent from my heart to yours. Always in His grip, Kina
