Greetings from the Philippines!!!! We are enjoying our time here at the beautiful Philippines base!! Monday morning the team began work on the project (new dorms). The work at the beginning was slow, but the team kept at it, and soon progress was seen. Tuesday and Wednesday work started at 5:30am to avoid working in the hot afternoons with no shade. Team members laid their first blocks Tuesday afternoon, and are slowly but surely getting the walls up. Team members work alongside BMW students; which provides them with a chance to learn about life here in the Philippines, and also interact with young adults. In their free time, the team members can be found either playing outside with the monkey, spending time with the students, or at the BMW store buying snacks. We plan to go to the beach Saturday afternoon as well as a shopping trip Sunday afternoon at a mall. Also on Sunday we will be doing a presentation at a church; which the kids are very much looking forward to!!!
