Our construction team of 8 arrived at the church site on Monday morning. We spent the morning preparing the surface of the walls for the primer, carrying cinderblocks to the back of the building where some of us helped construct 2 walls, and leveling the ground for a sidewalk. In the afternoon we put 2 coats of primer on the interior walls and started priming the outside walls. Great progress was also made on the concrete wall construction.
