Day 5

Hope 4 HANDS Team:

The team has officially been hard at work on the demolition. Claudia has really impressed us with her tenacity, and we've discovered that Justin D is a-ok with heights. I think we can all say that it's been a while since we worked so hard. When that sun comes out, we can feel the thermometer climb.

The Mwase Primary School is slowly being reconstructed with the help of our Zambian partners. While we're ripping the inch-thick stucco off the walls, they have been laying and mortaring bricks back up to the where the roof will sit. While it's hard to see it now, I think we're all looking forward to seeing the students in the classrooms. And there are so many of them! Jerry told us that there are over 900 students there.

Tomorrow, we're going to be ripping the flooring out and praying for shade.

Go team go! This is certainly a big project that will be of impact to the community.

So, nice to read and see things are good.

Keep spoiling us with blog updates. We would love to help, too. Since that is not an option we'll keep you in our prayers so you can keep on being a blessing to His dear ones in Zambia.

Clara wants to know how hot it is there and if grandpa Fred is working hard, How's the finger holding up Jerry?
