Conquering Construction

We came, we saw, we conquered. Construction that is!

On our final day at the site, we split up again. Most of the girls went to a new site and had the opportunity to perfect the art of hammering nails – something we learned a few days earlier. In fact, we set up all interior walls of a house! The boys and one lone girl stayed at the second site, setting up the frame of the roof for the home they were working on.

We were sad to leave our newly made friends from the construction site. The crew has been outstandingly helpful to us in this endeavor. It honestly would have been impossible to have come this far in our work had they not had the willingness, determination and patience to teach us everything we needed to know. Really, we could not be more thankful, because we are fully aware that as much as this was a challenge for us, it must have been a challenge sometimes for them as well.

We took pictures and said our farewells at the end of the day. It was saddening, but we know we have an entire four days of wonderful memories with them that we will be able to cherish for a long, long time.

As a group we are truly amazed at what we accomplished. We completed a great deal of work throughout the week and we could not have been more proud!
