The paint team has arrived.There are five guys on the team so I am
sleeping at Olivia’s house.They are a
great team and get along well.We start
our day with prayer and devotions.It’s
a wonderful way to start the day!
In just two days the team has already cleaned &
scraped the entire school and started the painting.There are four Dominicans that are helping them with the
school.Baroni, Jonathan, Jorge and
Luis.Our teams work along side the
community.Our teams don’t ever do it
alone.We provide the resources.It is important for the community to take
ownership of the projects and their school.
The school has not
been painted since June 2006. We painted the school the original colors. But
when the first paint went on I thought we’d bought the wrong color!The colors were so different after 7 years in
the hot sun.The school is going to
look great!People from the community
walk by all the time to see the progress, they are excited about the work being
done and so am I!
