Laying the foundation...

And work is underway!  It's hard to believe after so many months of praying and planning and hoping and waiting that the digging has actually begun!  

And hard work it is...cement trucks don't really exist out of the big cities (namely Kampala).  So all the cement for the foundation must be mixed by hand.  Bags of cement, jerry cans of water, gravel and sand are all brought in and mixed by hand.  Then the cement is loaded into a wheelbarrow and carried to where it is to be dumped.

It was great to see that some of the young men of our church and other OPCU churches are on the work crew.

A very typical scene...all the neighbor kids watching the blond headed girl that has a mind of her own.  I'm always impressed to see how my kids handle this attention with grace...on most days... :)

Abdalah is a great friend and a member of our church.  The church was able to rent a room for him right next to the property so that he can help with security.
