Day 4

Strathroy HANDS Team:

Our theme for today was "This is the day the Lord has made"

When we arrived at the school, there were no students so we missed our hugs.

We set to work finishing the trench and building rebar forms. After lunch we had to wait for the cement mixer, and there was no water until 3 o'clock. So we got to relax under the trees for a while. When we got going there were several local workers, along with the ten of us and also some students who came to check up on us. In an assembly line we got all 200 feet done in 2 hours, even though it started to rain.

We were cold and very wet on the ride home, but felt good about seeing some reults..

We had a late dinner and our reflection was on how well everyone worked together on this day that the Lord has given us.

Tomorrow we have a chance to do some sightseeing.

I'm sorry you got rained on, on what seems to be a busy work day. Thank you for your willingness to serve despite the wet conditions. I'm sure that will be a vivid memory of the trip!
