The basketball court is started
As you can tell, we had the help of almost all of the team members! Four-year-old Maddy digs to "help" level the dirt before the concrete could be poured. Because of rain, the team spent three days preparing the area before they could begin with the concrete. But during the week the team was here, we had beautiful sunny mornings and some overcast but dry afternoons. God is good!
We are excited to have the basketball court started. There will be several local churches that will come and put in some "sweat equity" in the next couple of weeks to further the work on the court. Due to several large gifts to the Camp, we are excited to see the work progressing so rapidly!
Here is our team from Iowa (pronounced I-o-way), Louisiana! It was great to hear southern accents all week! They worked well with the local workers, even learning a few words in Quiche.
Justin, our intern, leaves tomorrow for Texas. Johnny enjoyed having a "son" around the house and they worked well together. Justin seemed to enjoy his time here with us and is spending his last day climbing the volcano Pacaya. Thanks, Justin, for all of your hard work!
