The missioners are digging along the road again today. They've stated the top layer is as tough as yesterday, but they're reaching the softer underneath layer a little fast. That is great news for weary pick-axers.
The water situation has not been the best the last couple days at the compound. Apparently a broken pipe prevented Esquias from getting water yesterday and it took quite some time to fix it. We were promised water at 5, but it was closer to 7. The first people in the shower were able to get wet, soap up, only to discover there was no water to rinse with. We carried buckets of water from the pila, and gave them little scoops to use.
We had scrambled eggs, refried beans, tortillas, and fruit for breakfast. Everyone has been eating and resting well.
AFter last night's junta, Janet led a short prayer service. We sat in the courtyard and used candle for light. It was nice and we hope to do that nightly now that we are close to Easter.
We've begun scraping the second bedroom in the house where we're installing a cement floor. By the time we leave today, that house should have at least 1 floor completely done.
I plan to have the students blog tonight.
Big hug to my Mya from your grandma!
