Australia-11020

After the first few days of cold and rain, the Australia Team has been enjoying sunshine since Sunday. It`s beautiful here! Sunday we went to a Salvation Army Church for the morning service. The team sang and Christian Neal gave an excellent testimony that blessed everyone. Sunday afternoon we took the team down to a river park for fish and chips and team devotions with singing and Asher Carver shared with us all. We have this whole week before us at the base and next Monday we`ll be heading north to visit the Aborigine Community. So we are wanting to get as many projects accomplished as possible. Divide and conquer! At 6:15 they get a “cuppa”… that`s hot tea, Aussie style to warm up their bellies. At 6:30 we put in an hour of good physical stuff like breaking and moving concrete, dragging brush from fallen trees to a burn pile, chopping firewood, etc. After brekky and devos we break into groups to paint buildings, pour sidewalks, and debark trees to replace the Jacob`s Ladder. Lunch time comes around real quick and some library time out in the warm noon day sun. Back at it again in the afternoon and then it`s free time and bathing before the sun loses all it`s heat. After dinner we have some team time with Bible study, Team devos and Guys and girls class. And while all this is going on, the kangaroos just stop and stare at these crazy Americans with purple hardhats who occasionally creep up on them with cameras in their hands. No worries mate.
