While we were working Gregoria (mother) and Vilma (oldest daughter) started working they finished doing the laundry. Then Vilma got to work on the back strap loom making belts. Vilma was weaving colorful belts that the women traditionally wear around their skirts. The belts are sold for about 30Q ($3.50) and it takes her about 2 days to complete 4 of them on a single loom.
After lunch the younger children were home from school and quickly joined us at the construction site. They were playing in the sand Gloria and Barrett had sifted through in the morning. Three of the boys help Paula put sand in the bucket to mix concrete. We went back to work laying brick and Paula mixed another mean batch of cement. I attempted to lay brick straight but Cruz had to come along and fix the work. Just ask Jason and Paula if I offer to help build your wall politely decline because you may be fixing my work.

Please pray for opportunities for us to show Christ’s love to these children and being able to show the gospel to the people in the village. Thank you for all your support and prayers for our team.
