This morning the building team finished construction on the walls and windows and delivered them to the house. While they were delivering the walls, the family we are building the house for watched with smiles and anticipation of their new home. It is so exciting to see the house coming together. We then had the most exhilarating bus ride to the village of Parrojas. The view from the top of the mouton was most beautiful as you could see the many

Our team arrived at Loving Arms at 3:00 Tuesday morning, and we were up and preparing the supplies by 9:00. A few of our members went to the Elder Center to hang out and do activities and crafts.

Even though we were working on minimum sleep, we accomplished more than we anticipated on day 1.  We started off the day early just to find out that the water for showers was not working, but it could only get better from there.  Going stinky, we ate breakfast, had devotion,
