On Friday February 20, 2007 men from Middle Tennessee arrived in Honduras to build the 4th home at the Mission Lazarus Refuge. Many hours of preparation had gone into the venture, both stateside and in Honduras. About 95% of the lumber was shipped from in a sea container to Honduras back in December. The concrete slabe and locally purchased lumber, along with the lumber shipped in, were all ready and waiting when the men hit the ground running early saturday morning.
This is the third home built by the same group of men from Tennessee. It is true, third time's a charm. The house has gone together like a puzzle. It's been great to see the team work and the efficiency of the crew. From cutting rafters to hanging siding, there's a job for everyone. Even the preacher!!
Sunday night the men traveled about an hour to worship at a church in the village of Los Zorrillos. The service was packed and I would imagine has to be one of the highlights for all of the men on the trip.
The weather has been unseasonable cool. Lower 50's a night and low 80's during the day. We are in the middle of the dry season here in southern Honduras but we've even had some rain. No one has gotten sick....yet!
Thanks for all the prayers being lifted up stateside. They have kept everyone safe.
