Today was our last day of construction.  We completed an amazing amount of work.  But we not only did a lot of work, we did it well.  Our construction foreman, Pablo, kept us to a high standard.  When shingles were nailed less than straight, we pulled then up and tried again.  When sheetrock nails missed their marked, he showed us how to do it better.  He kept us to this standard because he knows that God deserves our very best.  On Saturday, we get to dedicate the church and house to God and give the keys to the church's pastor.  Pablo reminds us as we work, that we want to be able give a good gift.  

Later in the afternoon, we walked a local market picking up souvenirs and gifts for our friends and family.  We laughed a lot!   

Our meals have all been catered at the hotel, but tonight we went to a local restaurant as a group instead(the entire team of 150 people).  It was loud but so much fun!  

We are all healthy and happy.  We are proud of the work we've done.  We will sleep well knowing that when we dedicate the church and house tomorrow, we will have completed our task well.    

Buenas noches!
