Today we changed things up a bit. The guys went up to work at Lomngeletjane and the girls worked with youth from St. Paul’s to paint a bedroom and kitchen/living room in a house near St. Paul’s. It sounded like the girls were ready to have a bit of a break from the guys so the timing was perfect.
The guys did a fantastic job on the slab. They had the slab for the second classroom poured by lunch time. It sounds like they worked as a well oiled machine. Tomorrow they are hoping to do the slab for the third classroom, however, we still haven’t solved the water situation so we’ll see what tomorrow brings. I rented a generator to connect to the water pump so we could fill the water tanks, but evidently it quit working not long after we left the site. We are going to try to get it fixed first thing in the morning. If we don’t get it fixed, there is still plenty of work to be done but everyone is really hoping to have all four slabs done this week.
The girls went with some of the youth from St. Paul’s to a home near St. Paul’s in order to paint a couple of rooms in the house. It is the home of a youth from St. Paul’s that passed away last year. They had the two rooms painted before lunch as well. So all in all, at least for the girls, today turned out to be a day of a little rest as well.
