Bill (American who works in Vanuatu helping missionaries) and Hought getting a mix ready.
Tony (teammate of Bill's) working on the bond beam.
Nico (teammate of Bill's) cutting wire for the re-bar ties out on the porch/verandah.
Marcus (Bill's son) and Brandon (from US team, Brad's son) doing a pour for the bond beam on the shared wall between the Richards house and mine.
Scott and Brad (from US team) doing bond beam work in my bathroom.
Opening a fun package from a friend.
Bond beam done and rafters going up!!
Brad and Scott building the rafters.
It takes a village to hand-lift rafters up on a house!!
Elder Harry had a good idea in lifting the tallest part with a forked stick.
Hought working on grinding off re-bar.
Philip (our teammate) and Nico putting up the wood for the ceiling to sit on.
Here's us mixing it up.
While we were cooking, the kids were being silly and Gwen video'd them. It's not very many places that a regular toy for kids is a machete!! Well, maybe I should say not very many Western places!
Lakon is dancing! He's in Addy's kindy class at school and is VERY shy around me so I was surprised to watch this later.
The US team headed up to the volcano for a day. They rode the truck up through all the gardens, then walked the ash plain and up from there.
Jenette with Malibu, Joylin, Elsie, and some of the kids.
The full team. We are so blessed to have had so many genuine and generous people come out on their own dime to support us in this way. We would certainly not have a house without their help. If you want to help by giving toward someone coming out to visit (it's VERY expensive) or coming yourself, please let us know!
And now for random pics after they left and before the Oz team came a few days later...
Gwen - always with a puppy!
They were so generous and shared a huge chunk with us and it was delicious!
