We started off the week painting in one of the local elementary schools. Brenda, Lester's older sister, asked if we paint her daughter, Brithany's, classroom. It was the worst classroom in the school, with peeling, fading paint. So we got right to work. It looked like a whole new room by the time we were done.
|We opened each day with kids songs...motions included!!|
The afternoons were also packed with workshops. Lynn and Martha taught three women from the community how to sew using sewing machines, Chris taught guitar lessons, Val taught people Adriana how to use her computer, the guys continued on the roof, and Jeremiah worked in various people's houses teaching how to do electrical work.
Many good connections were made this trip. Since it was Holy Week, we made an open invitation to the church to hike to the three crosses up on the mountain that you can see from our house. We loaded a 28 passenger bus and headed out!!
