Day 3

Thunder Bay HANDS Team:


Today was another day of hard work. We seem to be starting to get used to this heat a little bit. It's still quite a change though!

The guys worked hard continuing to dig 4 feet deep for the foundation. They are almost done the digging stage. Michael hit a water line on his first swing of the day while digging, causing water to go everywhere. However, it was quickly fixed! Several deliveries of mix for the concrete came in today.The girls continued doing rebar cages. We still have quite a few to go, but we were much faster today than yesterday. The girls passed time by playing some games while working, such as an animal noise game. We played some soccer and volleyball with a student from the school today.

Lester brought us for a pit stop at a supermarket for some snacks in the evenings. Right now, we are getting ready to play some card games befire bed. Tomorrow, we are going to Mark VanderWees' house after dinner. He lives just a few miles from the Nehemiah Centre.

So far, none of us have gotten sun burned, sick, or hurt! We are very thankful for remaining healthy. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers!

Hi All,

I am happy to hear that you are getting used to the heat. Too bad we can't share your heat and the cold weather of TB. But hey... then we'd have nothing to complain about. Say hi to Mark VanderWees from Chris and Audrey when you visit him tomorrow. Did you know he used to work at our farm when he was a young lad He was into agriculture at an early age. I like the blog, it's nice to see what you are up to. God's blessing to all of you. You are in our prayers. Have a nice weekend and keep safe.

Love Audrey (Grandma to Adena)
