This morning was a great one as I woke up refreshed and ready to start the day. I had a hearty breakfast and then had a pretty fantastic devotion about starting something new, as I was planning on beginning to work in the refugee camp today. This was not actually the case as all were doing is driving there and not actually working but it was still a pretty good devo. We then took a trip back to J Lynn’s for the third straight day as we are doing more work in clearing land for a playground. Yes, we did continue to use machetes but don’t worry, we used them safely.
Part of our work consisted of removing the stumps of the banana trees, and picking up trash. Most of the day however was put into removing the giant pile of chopped down trees, sticks, and an incredible amount of leaves and other brush that had piled up from yesterday. We placed all of this into one pickup truck and I was truly amazed on how much the truck can hold. It was really a sight to behold the amount that was in there even though I thought about half of it would suffice. Once we concluded our work at J Lynn’s we came back to the guest house and now are currently getting ready for our 3-4 hour drive to the Kiziba refugee camp. This was an incredible day and I can’t wait for what is in store for tomorrow.
