Yesterday we had a lot of things going on at Lemuel. We started out the day at 7:30 a.m. with moving the 2×4’s, 2×6’s and other various needed equipment over to the school so that the men can start building the tresses for the school roof.
There were a lot of boards but we had help from the teachers….
and other people from the community…
It was great to see everyone eager to help with the project. After the boards were all carried over, the team of 5 men from Canada (Mark, Russ, Ian, Aaron, and Bert) began working with Samuel and a few other men to start the building process.
They worked very hard and were joined by a team from Wisconsin (Marcus, Rick, Luke and Katie) who flew in at 1:30 p.m. yesterday. We are happy to have most of the men here for two weeks to work on the roof. They also tore down the old school today so the children will be using the church and the porch on the teachers’ house to work on their schooling while the roof is being put on.
It was a very warm day yesterday so we made sure the men had hats to wear to keep the sun off their faces!
We hope to keep you updated on the progress of the roof while the groups are here working.
