Our Team:

Thursday, Feb 19

We used the day to relax and enjoy some of God's beautiful creation here in Belize.  We were treated to some fantastic cave tubing, where we floated through the underground streams in complete darkness other than our headlamps, for about one and a half hours.  We stopped at Jaguar Creek, a Christian resort and conference centre that Pastor Betson has visited in the past, for lunch. After lunch we went to the Blue Hole Park, a swimming hole that was connected to an underground cave system.  It started to rain, and was quite cool, Belizian standards, so we didn't stay too long.  It was a relaxing, yet tiring day.  One last evening at the Betsons' house before we head off for the airport tomorrow.

Miss everybody back home, hope to see you all Saturday

Wed, Feb 18

After Pastor asked us to come in Friday morning to finish the walls, we decided to put in a longer day today and complete the work instead.  We managed to complete the block, form and pour all the walls.  The rooftop is now safe for the students to be up there.  Pastor also does not have to worry about the unsupported sections of block falling down on to the school yard.

Day 5: Tuesday, February 17.

Pastor made us a breakfast of heartshaped fresh waffles.  Pretty sure it was to butter us up to get an early start!  Pastor wanted to be back to the boat dock by 8:00 so he dropped us off at the school earlier than normal.  He was picking up a group from Saskatoon who were arriving off the cruise ship.  A few of them had done a trip with the Promise Keepers years previous and wanted to stop by. 

The day was a hot one.  There was no breeze up on the roof,  but we managed to get a good day's work done despite the heat and we are on track to get all the block laid this week.  God is good!
