A new week.

Ready to raise and hold the wall frame in place for welding
While some things remain the work and school, most of our daily lives look very different at this point.

I try to keep in mind that this 'building' season is just for a while but I'm longing for the house to be done, be moved in and back to our 'normal' focuses: 'Equipping Haitians for building the body of Christ through spiritual, agricultural, and medical education'.
Lots of prayer that the supports would not fall off the edge!

Because some of the crew working on our house farm and all are impacted medically by life we do slip in some education on the job.

One agricultural chore includes daily watching for cows and calves breaking into the fenced area where Cory planted many trees and plants.

Then the chase begins...even in the rain.

I occasionally see and advise the Agape House kids and staff about medical issues.

But I'll admit to looking forward to being able to hike to the village or surrounding areas, getting to know the people, and sharing with them about God's love for them, as well as some advice to improve their lives.

Not sure what this week will hold. Yesterday afternoon we again experienced a few hours of rain.

Thankful to hear that Wade made it home. Thanks again Wade!

Crew should be coming up today to start the upper rock walls.

So thankful all 4 sides of wall supports are in place. 
Trying to figure out who will do the welding of the trusses.

Also working on getting another dump-truck load of cement, block and tin roof. of the next big jobs will be getting them in place
Rain on Sunday thankfully does not delay any of the house work and it helped bring up the cistern's water level again.
Dry season not here yet!
