Today we continued on the walls and floors. We switched up teams and trained Miguel and James on being masons. We all worked really well together as a team. Daniel and Jesus (the masons) we’re pleased with our work!! Great news is no one has gotten sick!!! James the giant could reach the wall without scoffolding, so he was a great block setter.
Fany came by to see her house and brought chocolate cake. She was thrilled at the progress. She told us more about her life. Her husband is from Cuba and trained as a pediatrician. He is currently doing his one year free residency and working consulting jobs to earn some money. Right now he’s working at the jail doing HIV testing. They met in Gracias Lempira at a birthday party and got married in Cuba. He is working towards his citizenship in Honduras. #thriventactionteam
