So, we have been building on our house, and now you can see the progress too!
|The rafters up on one side of the house|
|Getting geared up to put on the rafters|
|There is our little house with most of the metal up!!!|
|Putting on the perlins|
|A neat caterpillar Scott found and showed us|
|Little helpers! They helped smooth off the floor, removing the fallen mortar from the |
|There is the roofing going on! It is a concrete fibre board called Duralit.|
|A modufactured wrench.... an exhaust pipe from off of one of the air planes.|
A little more torque was needed, and so you make do with what you have!
|The extra torque in action!|
|Some friends gave us the start of a new kitchen: a stove and a gas tank!!!!|
|CERENID, a street boys home out in the mountains of Bolivia. A friend of ours, and student of the|
Matteson Mission School, is volanteering for a time here, so we went out and spent a Sabbath
there with the boys and friends.
|The bus stop leaving CERENID|
|Water ditches!!! Now for the water pipe.|
|The view from the front of the house. There is a big pile of dirt and a big tree with|
vines hanging from the high branches. The kids love to swing on from the
top of the pile on the vines.
|Steven in front of our house. It looks so much more homey with the laundry drying there.|
Hopefully in just a little while we will be living here!

I didn't put up any pictures of the garden because it looks very sad. The ants and the hard sand has been causing the corn to struggle. I have tried some more, but this time tilling the soil and adding compost, so I hope that it will do better now. Little by little we will be working on it, and when it is worth looking at, I will post pictures.
