Day 2---Ohh no ....Where's the WATER??????

Welland HANDS Team:

Began the day with "HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICE"!!!!!!!  The place was decorated..SURPRISE!!!

Off we went to work with Andy as our driver.  Watch out!!!!  Speed Bump.....man there were sooo many.

The staff surprised Alice with a school birthday card. Also a cake and she had to take a bite first ..Spanish style

Nacho and Henry got to work on the tiling project directing us to mixing the cement , filling pails with water, etc.

Laying tile the Belizean way was a stretch for us......learning curve...Same as yesterday..the well went DRY!!! ohh no...time for lunch--tacos....God was good because the water supply did come back.

A full days work meant we laid 100 tiles in cement with 1000 to go..Don't laugh..we will do our best.

During recess, the students are looking for us...can you play??  Of course we can!!!

A few of us had the chance to go into the classrooms after lunch. That was good for us to see and for the students to learn about our moose population, snow, and Canada.  Mary's teacher had to step out and she had to fill in. Ask her about that.

We finished about 4 pm and headed back....Eh Andy..nice tour of the town.

After supper we sang our hearts out, praising God for all He has given us this day.


Good night..until tomorrow..mañana
