Today several of our construction team were working up high in the rafters finishing the framing for the roof to ready it for the tin to be installed tomorrow. The interior walls were being parged, and tomorrow our team will start to work on the latrine.
Teachers were back to the classrooms reestablishing any routines that they had put into place last week. We were all surprised when a young lady came across the Black Volta by canoe with a gift of yams and dried fish from her father, a parishioner from Yaara who heard we were there.
Phil and Glenn returned late tonight due to the fact the dozer track chain failed once again after a couple hours running, and it took until after 7 tonight to get it running once again. New chains will arrive tonight, but will require a full day to install, so please pray that this last repair will hold so that Glenn can run these last days.
After dinner, the teachers gathered to continue organizing the play day we are having on Friday, and we hope to have some of the Babator ladies help us that day. We are hoping that this will be the opportunity to develop a relationship with them as we haven’t had a real chance to up until now.
Your comments and posts are REALLY appreciated. Please continue to pray for good health, workplace and commuting safety; that the equipment will run well; and that more than anything, we leave behind a beautiful lasting impression of Jesus’ love and provision.
