Greetings from the beautiful Mediterranean.
Work continues on all our varied projects. The team is having a lot of fun. We took some time yesterday afternoon to pull weeds and grass to make the property look nicer. We are having church at the camp where we are staying on Sunday. We should double the size of the congregation and look forward to worshipping with them.
The cold showers we get every day are a wonderful relief after working during the day. The temperature has been in the mid 80’s but has been dry and dusty. The team has to put into practice of what they learned at Boot Camp – drink more water!
We have been enjoying some great Italian food while we have been here. Pasta, fresh fruits such as watermelon, honeydew melon and pineapple. Most importantly we’ve had fresh bread most days which has quickly become a favorite.
Today we ventured out of our camp and went for a swim in the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. The beach has two sand bars with gentle rolling waves. They enjoyed swimming and making large sand castles. (More like an entire sand kingdom.) The missionary that we have been working with showed us a neat way to make sand castles using wet sand and dripping it out of you hand. It really made some neat looking designs.
This afternoon the team has been working very hard on their presentation to get it sounding great. They also did a lot of clean up work getting cob webs and dirty floors clean. All in all they are very tired today.
Everyone is healthy and sends their love to Mom and Dad and families back home, husbands especially!
