Updates from Guatemala Team

Friday,  March 4 - our first full workday....and we survived! Today the medical team joined the building teams as they set out to build two new homes in a village just outside of Chimaltenanga. 

The people in the village were very excited and many were standing near the building site when we arrived. Tabitha (age 14)  along with a few other members of the team,  kept the children entertained some pencil crayons and bubbles.(both were a big hit with the kids who stayed gathered around for hours) .  Both teams faced some challenges (uneven surfaces, re-digging post holes) but they worked things out and both houses are ready to have the cement floor poured!
Despite the size of this team (33 including our hosts, the Kings), everyone is working well together - stepping up to serve and sharing the workload.  It's going to be a good week!
