2011: Day 7
What an awesome day (seems like we say that alot)!! Everyone worked really hard. We split up into 2 teams and headed off to do two different projects. One worked on a greenhouse and one worked on the construction of a house for a family supported by a family in our church.
The Greenhouse team had to “mine” the sand and the gravel from the river bed. They had to pick up the rocks one at a time from what they had dug up. Then they had to carry what they had gathered up a hill about 100 yards. Then the post holes for the greenhouse in dirt that might as well have been rock (really hard). Then we mixed about a 10 wheel barrow loads of cement to support the posts in the holes. Made a “bucket-brigade” to pass the cement to fill the holes for the supports. We also dug a trench around the entire greenhouse to hold the fabric from being blown away. We will be returning tomorrow to assemble the structure so the fabric can be pulled over.
