As you can see, they are making progress on the concrete foundation of one of our homes. All three are expected to be done this Friday. Late next week they will begin working on the pilas. We will get to help mix the concrete for those, so we'll have the experience of mixing it by hand.
Donated items are coming in well. It's gratifying to see how generous everyone is. Although we still do not have enough to fill our 72 bags, the Gehlen Mission Honduras storage area is beginning to fill. We will continue collecting all items. This week our focus is new clothes (or gently used), cloth diapers, diaper covers, and diaper pins.
During our final week we are focusing on all items. However, we are also hoping to collect the handmade stretch bracelets, small toys (jump ropes, bubbles, stickers, match box cars, Play-Doh, sidewalk chalk, etc.). hair ties, nail polish, combs, and brushes,
We'll try to post more pictures of the progress in Honduras as they come in.
