He also spent almost every evening helping out with some computer problems!
But everything he did wasn't work! We did visit Panajachel and Antigua. Here, you can see him climbing the waterfall between the Camp and Panajachel!
Thank you, Wayne, for all of your work! But most of all, thank you for coming to visit and lift us up!

The basketball court, the papifut court, the playground equipment and, especially, the new bathrooms were all utilized!
We were joined by several of our CAM staff - Niel and Diana Thomas, Glenn Stewart, Brandon Scott (who didn't show up in pictures because he took many of these!), Joel, Vivian and Josh Lara and finally Mike Stephenson, who represented CAM International in the dedication!
fun and games! Noe refereed the guys' papifut games while the ladies played a basketball tournament! I didn't get a picture of the winners with their trophies because during this time they also started feeding the crowd.

and a bucket brigade!
Such was our Monday, a week ago! The guys had finished the "prep" work for the cistern on the mountain and were ready to pour the walls.
Believe it or not, they had a shovel that even fit my hand! I spent three hours shoveling sand and filling buckets. Thought I wouldn't be able to move the next day but God was gracious.
Two days later, the forms were removed and now they just have to make a top for it and fill it up! We are having a celebration to officially open the new building on the 2nd of November. By that time, all of the bathroom amenities will be completed and the lights in! (Wayne, guess what you will be doing!)

The rocks are thrown into the hole...
then leveled. A layer of concrete will be placed on the bottom and sides.
Two small springs empty into the cistern also. Kiki drinks the water, saying that it is not contaminated, just dirty...and a little dirt is good for you!
Johnny prepares to make another load.

They say they are going to build a new bridge, but if they don't hurry, any small earth tremor will take care of the destruction process! We still pass that way, wondering each time if we will be able to return!
