Day 7

Newmarket HANDS Team:

We left Managua at 8:00 this morning to return to Matagalpa. We stopped by the Cathedral and then had lunch and headed to the work site. The team from Rochester, NY has gone home so it was much quieter at the work site. We continued to dig out the trench that they had started outside the building for the cement footings may be poured for the walk around the school. A foot of gravel was placed into one the classroom. We completed the room partly because for a few loads the front end loader stayed at let us shovel right into the wheelbarrow.

Unfortunately a few team members are still battling diarrhea so had to stay behind. Please pray for recover.

Before we left the Nehemiah Center this morning a 3 wheel car appeared to make a delivery. These cars are very popular here. We decided to see if we could get all of the team members in. We had to do it Nicaraguan style with some standing on the side board.

Sorry to hear that some of you are still not well, praying for your health. The day at the beach looked fun. Looking forward to hearing all your stories.
