We had another day of work yesterday and the weather finally held out for us. Matt our weather man says that if we can see the volcanoes in the morning from our roof, we will have rain in the afternoon. Well, that held true again for yesterday. We had a beautiful day in the morning and early afternoon so we could finish painting, then right when we were cleaning up to leave, the rain came! We could not see any volcanoes this morning, so we will check if Matt's prediction is correct.
We taught 54 kids yesterday in VBS, which was a little rougher yesterday than previous. God will give us strength for today so we can continue to teach the children about God. Today's lesson is about Zaccheus, and we are giving the children pictures of themselves. Kathy took them yesterday, printed them last night in the hostel, and will give them out today. That should be a hit!
We finished painting the entire outer wall yesterday, inside and out. We also finished the downstairs bathroom, started the "blue room" and cleaned one of the supply closets. Today more inside painting. The building crew finished the first part of the bathroom, too. They worked extra long, staying behind when the rest of the team left to help the maestro lay concrete on the 2nd floor foundation. That will sit and cure for about 2 weeks, so they are now part of the VBS team. We will not get to see it completed, but most of the hard part is now done.
Thanks again for all of the comments and prayers. We finally figured out how to add some pictures, so I will continue to add more to let you know what we are doing. Blessings to you all from Quito, and we will see you all in Kernersville in a few days.
