My name is Aleiah and our photographer, Ashley and I have been volunteered to update you on our time spent in Chile! The steel pavilion has been successfully finished!!!! After all the hard work, it looks fabulous! Team one also completed the painting of the vocational building and started the work that team two will be completing.
Thursday and Friday, team one and our “thirty dayers” enjoyed a fun and restful weekend in Viña del Mar! We shopped, swam in the ocean, dined at delicious restaurants and enjoyed each other’s company, before some of us had to catch a plane. It was a great way to end an amazing trip!
Team one has returned home safely and team two arrived at the Hogar on Sunday with no problems. We had a wonderful lunch prepared for us by the Tias. After the long plane ride we were grateful for the rest and fellowship with the girls we had in the afternoon. That night we ate pizza and a team meeting to get to know each other and learn about the Hogar. We found out what we will be doing for the next two weeks as well.
Our project manager, Kerry, is overseeing the building projects of the team. Today we began to finish the work on the library that team one started. Putting up siding and tearing off the roof will keep us busy for a while!
Six of our team members are working for us on a special project at a CMA girls’ boarding school in Linares, Chile. The “Linares Six” are upgrading one of the dorms, which includes painting, roofing and other construction work.
We will keep you updated on our progress throughout the next two weeks. Please continue to keep us in your prayers!
