Day 9

Still trying to wear out the Americans. No such luck they’re still wanting more. We put the 4wheeler up the mountain and locked it behind a tree and used the winch to pull one of the poles up to prepare for tomorrow. It was also used to lift the big post onto the kia, then used the kia to the pole back down the ready hole. Some of the boys found the human post hole digger actually worked. Just needed an old paint can instead of hands. The center table was finished in white tile for the kitchen. The bathrooms wall tiles are near complete. Need grouting ect. The upper door was installed. The Lighthouse children were enlisted today by Lisa, Some washed dishes, Some washed clothes (the old fashioned way on the stone washboard,
some picked up trash and burned it. Everyone it seemed was redeeming the time and endured till the end. Amen!

That digging upside down made Dylan comment that all the blood would go to his head and he couldn't do it. What are the big poles for? I couldn't quite read Ang's shirt: "I can handle any crisis..." what?
Thanks for all the pictures. How did the evangelism go? Please tell all the Americans the Parfitts say, "Hi."
Love, Mom Parfitt
