11005-Bethlehem Working Hard

Our jet lag days are behind us and we have begun work on our project. The team is tying steel, digging up and removing rocks and pouring concrete. Thanks to Boot Camp training, they are proving to be quite the construction experts. The sound of hammers hammering and shovels scraping is like an acoustic symphony.  I can tell when they are coming in for meals when the sounds stop. They come in for lunch and dinner all covered in dust and dirt, proof of a hard days work. The weather is perfect: sunny, dry and slightly breezy…just enough for your clothes to be dry right after you finish hanging them up.:) We are doing our first presentation tomorrow for the children attending the college’s summer camp. We see the kids daily and they are always full of smiles for our team. Although the language barrier is great, their smiles say more than words. As excited as they are to see us, we are just as excited to see them. May the Lord use us to bless them as much as they bless us. We covet your prayers for us as we minister here in Bethlehem.
