...And so it Begins

Wyoming HANDS Team:

Hi everyone!

We started out our day at Ruth and Mario's home, where they served us a delicious breakfast.  After acquainting ourselves with the school, we got straight to work.  We split up into four groups, doing a variety of jobs from cleaning out a classroom to electrical work to plastering a wall in a stairwell.  We're all learning new skills this week as well as applying previous knowledge to the work we're all performing.  

Kyle has his work cut out for him this week installing electrical fixtures and trying to figure out the circuitry at the school.  Pastor Hoogland and Andrew have already learned how to mix and apply plaster.  We'll continue to learn our tasks this week and use our abilities to enable New Life Christian School in promoting Christian education.

We ended our day by taking a stroll through the town of Orange Walk, and capped off the night with team devotions and supper.  We're looking forward to another day at the school, using our gifts for the improvement of New Life Christian School.

Thank you for all your support so far!  

The HANDS Team

Hello from the Egremont!! I'm enjoying hearing the updates...

I pray for a great day for you all: that your bodies are adjusting to the change in climate and food (?), that you have found your lost luggage :-), that your work goes well, and most of all, that you experience unity and growth as a team.

It's cold up here...hope you're enjoying the warmth!

I hope you all experience a lot of fun and growth today, HANDS team :)

Bonne journée!

P.S. If the temperature is super hot and hard to adjust to, think of Chicoutimi where even the daytime weather is happy to chill around the -20C mark and maybe you'll feel better... mind over matter ;) Or maybe if you're winter-crazy, you'll feel jealous instead haha
