After a day of rest and relaxation, it was back to work for all volunteers.
This morning was the first day back to school for the kids, following their New Years Break. It was great to see the children that benefit from all our hard work. They were slightly distracted as we painted the outside walls of their classrooms. Peaking through the wire mesh windows-always smiling for the camera.
Work continued on the new building on temple property - cement was mixed and carried as the outside curb/sidewalk was poured, then troweled and stained a deep red colour. It looks great with the yellow colour on the walls. The electrician completed the connection of the electrical panel and branch circuits and tomorrow they will connect the electric power to the building. The carpenters showed us how to use their tools, with their skill and our willingness, the construction of the doors and windows was well underway by day's end.
