Day 6 Comes to a Rainy Close

Woodland 2014 HANDS Team:

Day 6 is now coming to a close and once again we have had a very good day.  We returned to the NCA and split into a number of work teams.  Nathan and Derrick immediately joined the Nicaraguan workers who are busy digging an 8 foot deep trench for the foundation for the next set of classrooms.  Several other team members continued sealing the back wall of the school to keep water out of the foundation and the rest of us went back to work breaking, digging and clearing rock from the sports field of the future.  A brief shower at about 2:00 stopped all work so we sat under the roof of the open air 'gym' and watched and joined in a PhysEd class.  It was a very good day.

Tonight we are relaxing at home and beginning to make the mental adjustment to the fact that our trip is rapidly coming to a close.  The first four days were long and packed, but they didn't pass quickly.  However the final days of our trip seem to be racing to an end.  Tomorrow we work once again and then later in the day we return to Managua to stay at the Nehemiah Center for our last night.  We continue to be blessed with good health for the most  part and our spirits are thankful and high.
