3 BEFORE WE BEGIN... Tents were spacious and clean (swept and mopped, every day). A maximum of 4 persons were provided each a bed and armoire. Sheets were re-tucked every day with blankets and pillows re-staged. Food was plentiful, un-processed and all cooked on open fire. There was no refrigeration. Water was plentiful for drinking and limited for other purposes.

4 BUILD A SCHOOL Inch by inch, foot by foot, brick by brick! Our task was to finish digging a 4 foot deep by 300 foot long trench to serve as the foundation to a dormatory for the new FTC secondary girls school the community. After 3 half days of work, we left the project with one work day left to complete. The foundation will be poured by mid-March!
