Monday January 9th

Today was the first day in the village for the team and everything went much more smoothly than I was expecting.

The construction team got starting on our next emergency house by digging the foundation and putting in rocks and cement. Here are some pictures that my Dad took throughout the day:

In the afternoon we were able to take a walk through the village and see some of the houses that PID has built and also give the group a better understanding of what life is like here in Village ConcepciĆ³n. Many of them were really impacted by the poverty but also encouraged by the happiness of the people and especially the children.
