Day 9 - Last full day.

Strathroy HANDS Team:

Today's  theme was " Toiling for the Lord"

Another beautiful day, up early, with sun shine and a cooler breeze off the water.

At the school  a few of us started laying and pointing the blocks.We also visited a couple of the classes and continued cleaning up the yard.

After lunch we were invited to an assembly. All of the children participated and there was much enthusiasm with singing of songs and dancing. We also shared a few songs with Tom leading. Then there were grateful speeches from both  sides. We each received a gift from the students.

When we went back outside, the fence was completed to the level required. The workers will continue finishing the cement and placing the chain link. Next month a HANDS TEAM from Alberta will come to work on the other side of the lot.

We got to watch a soccer match between a Catholic school in the village and our school. The home team was skilled and we'll prepared and won 2-0.

Back at the hotel we were able to say thank you to Pastor Alvera  and the ladies who brought us supper each evening and to talk about his plans for the future of the Presbyterian schools in this area.

A last walk around town for ice cream and then back to pack.

In her thank you, Christian mentioned that she could see that we were laboring for the Lord and we also noticed that all the staff was as well.

Tomorrow is a travel day, starting early. We will see you all soon.
