More Construction Pictures...

To say that this has been a disruption to our lives would be a vast understatement.  I normally consider myself to be very flexible and very easy going, but this is testing that fact to the max.  But we are surviving and the end of the first phase (and hopefully the worst?) is in sight.

After they finish each room, this is what the walls look like.  They have to all be washed down really well, but even so, the entire house is going to have to be repainted.

 And the dust is absolutely amazing, as you can see in the sunlight.  It takes at least 3 or 4 days for the dust to settle completely.  We are having to mop the floors almost every day.  Each room that gets finished has to have at least 3 complete cleanings before it will stay somewhat clean.  This is quite a project!

Apparently the dust requires a bandanna and glasses... ;-)

Please continue to pray for patience for us...even as we have still begun school this week despite the mess, for good breathing for Benaiah (his O2 saturation rates regularly dip into the upper 80s/low 90s...praise the Lord for his inhaler!), and also that none of us would get malaria from all this.  We have not been able to sleep under nets the last couple weeks when we've been home and the mosquitoes are really bad right now.  Some of the kids are just covered in bites even though we've been careful to use copious amounts of bug spray.   Oh, and just for kicks, our water has been out for over 48 hours now....it would be a blessing for that to return too...  Did someone around here pray for more patience or something?!  :)
