Parkland HANDS Team:

What a great week - following one final day of work and a 1/2 day visiting other schools, we're all safe at home again, thanks be to God.  The team completed parging of all 6 upstairs classrooms.

Vsiting other COCREF Schools is always a highlight of a HANDS trip... it's truly amazing the initiative, vision and faith that can be seen at both La Esperanza and the other campuses.  Because of the National Holiday, Friday was a PD and parent/teacher day at the schools we visited.  The first visit was to Renacer where amazing things continue to be done by the principal, and the community, long after the HANDS Teams are gone.  Rooms were renovated and retro-fitted, additional decorating was undertaken; all through community planning, fundraising and initiative.  The pride and ownership at the school, it's potential and it's legacy is real, and for us was a blessing to see and experience, God is so Good!

The next visit was to Nueva Creacion de Fe school where a central Alberta team worked several years ago; it was heartening to see it completed and fully functioning in spite of the "cramped" environment.  The principal commented her prayer is that God will bring a roof for the 3rd floor playground - this blogger believes He will.

Thanks for following, and for the comments, encouragement and prayers.  Until next time;

The Parkland Team
