Today we decided to build a ramp for the girls who cook the meals (different girls are assigned each day to kitchen chores), because it was about an 18 inch step to get up from the inside kitchen to the outside kitchen. Nathan, Chris and I built the ramp even though the girls said they didn’t really need it that “they were fine.” After it was finished, the children put their hand prints around the border of the cement ramp and Betsy signed “Isaiah 49:16” in the cement. Even Brownie, the dog, has his paw print in the cement! (The added benefit I found is now I can get a sample of the delicious food before anyone else.) Ron and one of the boys, Harold, also prepared the timbers and rafters to build the gazebo structure tomorrow and a team of Jericho boys (led by Rolo) laid in steps down the top part of the steep path to the prayer gazebo. Today was a very productive day but much easier than yesterday, when we carried all the materials down the rocky path (about an eighth of a mile) and mixed concrete by hand for the 14x14 gazebo foundation. Now that was a long day! The Jericho boys stay by our side and work hard every day and it’s been great to see their interest in each project.
