Guatemala 2016-Day 2

Today, our 25 person team was divided into four different work sites. Three groups were sent to begin construction on houses and one group was sent to the local seminary to help with English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.
 
We are excited to report that after the first day of construction, SIX houses are near completion and construction on houses #7 and #8 has begun. 
 
And as promised, here are more pictures…

This lady was so excited about having her house built that she met our team at the truck and carried tools to the worksite–even with her baby on her back.
