Back on the job

Faith in Action HANDS Team:

Bright and early we arrived back at Divino Salvador School (Divine Saviour), ready to work! We began the day by setting up some saw horses for more painting, and preparing to mix for concrete. Sand, stone and bags of cement mix were delivered and the recipe was three wheelbarrows of sand, two wheelbarrows of stones and three bags of mix, added to five pails of water makes up a batch, and this is all mixed by hand! We formed a bucket brigade up to the second floor which worked very well.  Gail also had opportunity to work with the Compassion Program that uses the school facilities to work with those who cannot afford Christian education. They are able to teach reading and writing through Bible stories, meals and a Christmas gift.   We are enjoying the fellowship working together as a team and seeing the results of our hard work in so many areas at the school.  Many parts, one body of Christ!  We came home tired and ready for showers and delicious food.  Tomorrow the rest of the concrete work begins, so off to bed we go! We pray for God's continuing care over the whole work group for another new day.
