Day 4 (Thursday) at the Construction Site

Today was an exciting day as our medical team held their clinic at the site where our church is just about complete. We had fun assisting them and some of their crew helped us out with construction as well.

The exterior painting was completed on all of the walls that were done and the 2nd coat of paint was put on the doors. The sidewalk was completed all the way around the church (which included lots of trips to the well with buckets and sifting out the dirt to make more concrete). The back room was completed with all of the mortar to smooth the surface of the concrete block walls. A beautiful mural was painted inside the baptismal by one of the locals.

It has been a great week so far and much was accomplished. We enjoyed working along with the medical team today as well as alongside the wonderful people of the Dominican Republic.
