Digging holes and much more! Day two at school!

Faith in Action HANDS Team:

Greetings from Nicaragua!!  We began another sunny day working at the school, and were on the jobsite bright and early. There was so much to do and alot was done!  Much more painting needed to be done, many were working on the second floor addiition, alot of welding was being done, and 4 holes per room were being dug in three of the classrooms that will be structural supports for the second floor. We have enjoyed working alongside the local Nicaraguans.  One of our team members, Gail, stayed back at the Nehemiah Center and worked on making centrepieces for Christmas.  We were thankful that she was able to recover from the heat of the previous day. It is always great to connect with the neighborhood children around the school during lunchtime, and play some soccer, sidewalk chalk and skipping rope. We came back very tired and thankful for showers and delicious food prepared for us. Steve and Kim Holtrop and their children(Steve works for Christian Reformed World Missions) joined us for dinner and Steve shared about the history of Nicaragua and the vision and goals of the Nehemiah Center and his work here among the people.

We are all doing well and ask for continued prayers for health and safety and that we would be a blessing to those we connect with at the school and in the surrounding neighborhood. For God's glory!

Great update! I know Rob was looking forward to being with the children! Glad you're getting some time to enjoy them!

I can't help but keep looking at the picture you posted, though, and wonder what on earth it is that Ruth has in her mouth?!?! hehehehe!!!

Constantly praying... and sending my love!
