All in Country

I just picked up Jen from the airport and we are to meet the other five (Jacob, Stephanie, Katherine, Mercedes and Michael) at the IWE Center tomorrow where we will stay for the rest of the trip and begin working.  It's only an hour or so away depending on weather and we hope to be there by noon.  We haven't had any contact yet from the team that has arrived there but we have some hopes. They probably were able to survey the center. Taking before pictures at the technology sites.  The roof lines for rain-gutters, the kitchen for the brick stoves and the plot of land where we will build a coop for 50 chickens.  If they got any further than that, they probably interviewed the orphanage director, Theopiste, about the needs and costs of the orphanage which can help us identify more exactly our impact.  Even further than that and Jacob and Michael may have been out to hardware stores pricing bricks and wood boards for the stoves and coop.  That's a big wish though.

Once we're all together tomorrow the real work begins...
