Talk about concrete!

Faith in Action HANDS Team:

Today we woke up to another beautiful day of sunshine. We were once again fed a good breakfast and off we went!  We arrived, and as we have done every day, we opened with prayer with our team and fellow Nicaraguans and the concrete started mixing! We were thankful to have a cement mixer helping us out, and boy was he hungry! We hauled up approximately 1200 pails of cement to the second floor. We were like a finely tuned machine, all parts working in sinc to get the job done.  From getting the mix ratios ready, to mixing the concrete, to shovelling the pails full, to handing them up to be then handed up again to the second floor, and then lastly for the men who were trowelling.  Wow, we were so thankful to be done this part of the job!  Painting was also being done, cleaning up, working with the Compassion Program and filling the 12 holes with concrete.

It was a good day, and we enjoyed the fellowship with all those we came in contact with.  After every lunch time, we enjoy a time of relaxing out on the streets and chatting and saying hello to those that walk by. 

We enjoyed a delicous meal and showers felt oh so good! We are so excited to see the progress being made at the school, and know that many children will be able to benefit from Christian education. Praise to the Lord!

There's my hard working husband! :-) He told me he was really looking forward to going to Nicaragua to put in some good hard work and I'm so proud of him, especially seeing a picture of him hard at work! I know this has been a fantastic experience for him and I know that the team has become very special to him. God's blessing all of you! And so many who will get to use this "new" school!
