|Some of the children from the village that would watch us build each day.|
|Starting the roofing|
|The kids were masters at weaving pine branches into little crowns and bracelets.|
|About half-way done with the roof - such a beautiful view!|
|The family made lunch for us to show their thanks.|
|The chicken soup that they made for us.|
|Watching the house dedication with one of the girls from the village.|
|Finished house after just 4 days!|
|Dedicating the house to the family.|
|The family was very thankful for their new house!|
|Nailing in a sign above the door that says "Casas por Cristo"|
Came back to the compound for dinner. Had show and tell. Got to share my little marble with everyone! Told everyone our favorite parts of building the house -- mine was mixing the cement. Then we all played Mafia -- long game, but fun!
Thoughts: I am glad I made another bold move and came on this trip alone. Tons of new friends and people to go to church with. Praise GOD for this opportunity. Thank you Jesus for the beautiful, kind Guatemalans. I love them and can see God in the children.
