On Sunday night we met, voted, polled a friend, and decided to sleep in. We decided to start work at SIX AM but I think some of the guys thought that said that we would finish by SIX AM.Who can complain about missionaries who want to start early?

Coffee was ready by FOUR AM and work began shortly thereafter. We had SIXTY TWO portions of food to prepare and these guys made short work of it. Finishing dividing and bagging by SIX AM and before my second cup of coffee, and uh breakfast, the generator was fixed and running as well as an old Toyota of Ely and Rosa’s. Donna, Joyce and Shay start the process of sorting VBS materials. While Mike Gower receives instruction from his wife, Teresa. This was Mike, Teresa’s and Shay’s first mission trip. What a blessing they were to us all. After breakfast we loaded the trucks and trailer with tools, shovels, picks, wheel barrows, FIVE gallon buckets, the cement mixer, along with lunch and supper before heading for Nueva Florida.

Todays agenda…pour a concrete band around top of Pastor Armando’s new house, start roofing the new church building, and get ready for Bible school. We began pouring the band at the house. The scaffolding always amazes me, especially when it holds the weight of gringos. The team does a fantastic job.

Neighborhood children gather to watch all the action.

Lunch is a welcomed sight! Pastor Armando’s old house in the back ground.

Jerry and Buckshot taking a siesta…just couldn’t resist! It was evident that Bible School was going to be interesting. With limited space a soccer game was out of the question so we introduced the boys to TUG OF WAR…it was a blast! Thank you for your prayers! Day one is in the books…
