First day at our worksite.
The lady in yellow is the mother that we are building a home for. Her name is Josepha. We are also building a home next to her's for her son, Jorge. We did a lot of work today: digging a trench, moving blocks, pouring cement (which we all love), moving more dirt, digging the trench even deeper and finally moving more dirt. We had an excellent and interesting soup today with tripe in it.....some liked it more than others.
We had many people from the community of Santa Margarita come and help the 16 of us. They all work so hard!
Tomorrow we have lots of work to do. We will be spreading all the dirt out, then tamping it down and then pouring their foundation floor.
