Monday started VBS here, and there are about 50 kids coming. Half of our team helps with VBS while the other half works on the project every other day. The team has done well interacting with the kids. They have taught us some new songs and we have taught them some new songs. Our team doing puppets has been a real treat also.
The project was pretty much on hold Tuesday because of rain, but we have caught up and are ready to pour concrete tomorrow on a 150′ drain that we have been digging for the past several days. Starting Monday, the team is really excited about laying blocks on the drain as well.
The church continues to bless us with Trinidad meals. This week we had Roti Bussupshut, translated torn shirt and is a shredded type of bread. Along with that curried chicken and potatoes and pastries
