The heat took a few casualties this afternoon, Jay was the worst but it affected us all. Digging the 45′ x 21′ foundation by hand proved to be quiet a rash in the 100+ temp. Some would argue the sanity of the gringo’s even doing this kind of work, while others don’t believe in construction missions at all.

But I would like to explain our view:

  • 1. Construction projects draw some who might never go on any other kind of mission trip.
  • 2. There is always opportunity to be a witness as we work.
  • 3. Over and over, again and again hard physical work, by Americans, always causes a stir and people come from all over to see.

The question they always asked is “Why are they here working so hard?” and the answer is “Because we have the love of Christ in our hearts and we want to share His love with them. On doing so, we bring glory to the Lord.”
