It´s not about the work!

Immanuel HANDS Team:

But it is.

We need to keep reminding ourselves that our focus is not the work. But we sure got a lot of work done, both yesterday and today. We apologize for not publishing our blog yesterday; we had technology issues. When we got back to Home Base after a day of hard work, the power was out, the shower didn´t work and supper was delayed. Then the speaker for the video didn´t work, and we couldn´t have our regular devotions. 

Yesterday? Our 5 footings holes were dug before noon.  (Last year´s team took more than 3 days to dig 15 holes.) Peter, our in-country organizer, is already concerned that there won´t be enough easy work for the team to do. We´re painting trusses and perlins for two jobs, and some of us are building re-bar cages for columns, doorposts, grade beams and bond beams. All typical stuff for Edudeo teams. Tomorrow we might actually be smart enough to engage the students and teachers so we can say we made friends and are working on relationships instead of just giving our time for 8 days.

Hi team:

Sounds like there have been a few set backs in your day- no power, no shower...all thing that are bound to come up when travelling. I pray that you'd find some sort of light in all of it...

Praying for the rest of your time there! Thanks for the updates :)
