Back to school!

Well, after a day off work I think we would all admit, getting back into work mode wasn’t an easy task, but after a short time, everyone was back into working in the Dominican heat.  The day started off with the presentation of a box of school supplies to the school principal.  She was very grateful for this awesome contribution.  Thanks so much for this donation (You know who you are).

Today’s work consisted of mixing cement, mixing mortar, laying more bricks, leveling the inside of the classrooms and moving fill into the rooms.

 We had a great day of interaction with the kids as they are becoming more comfortable with us around and we with them.

 The school has been so gracious ensuring that we are well hydrated and fed as we work there.  It is amazing the quality of service and food that the school staff has provided us, (we would say better than any resort) yet another of many humbling moments this trip.  We have been convinced we have figured out that the secret ingredient to their delicious food and wonderful service must be love.  They love to have us there and take care of us as we try to serve them.  God’s love just flows out of these people.

 God blessed us with cloud cover this afternoon which afforded us the energy to work longer and get more done today.

Josh wasn't done serving as after supper he insisted on helping with the dishes! (see picture) 

Thanks so much for the encouragement, it is always great to see comments.  Please continue to do so.
