While Shelbi was teaching at the conference, the 6 men of the GCC team went to work. On Monday Shelbi, Abigail, Naomi, and I went to check out the progress on the church property.
The guys had been hard at work with surveying equipment, so there were lines all over the ground representing future buildings.
To get a look at the rest of it, Shelbi’s husband, Sean, took us on a tour.
They’ve been charting out and digging septic lines.
Digging the septic pit and leach field, as well as a cistern to collect and store run-off from our heavy Malawi rains.
They’re also making an awning for our current storeroom, which I believe will eventually be the maintenance area. Sean, Edgar, and Christopher are busy, but not too busy to strike a pose for a picture or two!
And they’re just about ready to lay pipes for the septic system. Abi and Omi were giving it a go to see if they were any good at construction. They are significantly better at wearing pink tutus and posing for cute shots than they are at construction, but they had a great time pretending!
It was fun to see progress on the land! I’m sure we have many, many months of construction ahead, but I’m looking forward to the day when both the church and CAPA can move onto this property!
Great to see the progress!
