End of day one. Today went very well. Started with breakfast, then bible study, then work. Dan lead the men (Bob, Chris, Ron and Nathan) and began work on the gazebo, which will serve as a meditation and prayer area. It's located about 1000 feet from the villa, down a steep grade. When checking out the area I took a tumble and Brownie, the home dog, came over very concerned. I was ok but spent the day painting the home. Lots of painting to be done.
About 7 boys, aged 11 and up, helped the men carrying rocks and sand, building forms, and leveling the site. An incredible amount of work was done.
The women joined in the painting.
One young girl, just a sweet kid, said her father, who rarely visits, told her told her he would get her brown boots for Christmas. He never showed up. In a way a small hurt for a great kid who is a victim of abandonment. But it still hurt. They all enjoyed the crocks -- actually they loved them.
The boys are so good and worked so hard. They treat us great and just are so happy to be here in a safe place, with great care.
