August 2011: Swaziland Outreach Day 4


Today I joined the other Developing World Connections teams at our building site. They have laid hundreds of bricks and built very quickly a two room child care center. Meanwhile, the other team created a garden from scratch. We purchased hundreds of seedlings and planted them. I really needed a day of hard labor and so I joined the construction team for the afternoon to haul huge bricks and pick-axe and shovel hard clay. The sun beating down at around 33 degrees (ps....this is their winter) ... I cannot imagine their summer. We know now that we must pack lunches for the community volunteers and our amazing driver Muzi. We also bring extra to give away to those who need it.
