Today is Sunday and because there has been quite a bit of rain. We decided to stay on the premises and have church in our chapel.
The ministry trains and educates women in a skill that will enable to become independent and support their children. (Men are usually not in the picture.) Mi Esperanza has a store of their wonderful handmade products. We buy their products and the profits go back into supporting their efforts. You can read more about them on their website.

|This was one of the "houses" that was close by.|
|Notice the mud around this "shed", we had to walk around the to bring the lumber in to our "site". See the rocks we had to balance them on, they were surrounded by mud and nasty standing water. A little boy was hanging around all day. When we were walking to the bus, he told us this was his house. It didn't have a floor. I guess they aren't finished building it.|
|We always need 2-3 to hammer the roof. I'm glad I don't have to do that!!|
