Extreme Make-over, Home Edition

Alejandro's house before construction began...

Well, our little team has been busy, busy, busy! This was the last day of our team from Covenant Community Church - finishing it out by working hard on Alejandro's house. It's about 2/3rd done, I know they were disappointed that it wasn't done by the time they left - but the most important part - the foundation and the majority of the walls were done! Everyone worked their tails off, and I KNOW that they are all sick of cement blocks and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but feel like their time here was well spent indeed! After another hard day we took some kids to the river and cooled off in the refreshing water! Great day indeed, and we will miss this team indeed - but we are already preparing for the next team that arrives on Sunday.

As much as the team was able to get done! A LOT of hard work!

That is a good start on that house! And I'm sure it will make such a difference for that family! The river looks awesome...we miss being able to swim in the rivers here since there basically aren't any! :o Don't miss the humidity, though...
