The third and final team from Myers Park UMC will wrap things up tomorrow.  Three weeks ago they started by putting the first columns in place.  Today we put the roof trusses up, finished back filling the interior of the house so we can pour the concrete slab next week, and continued plastering the walls.  In 12 actual work days, we've built what is starting to really resemble a home!  I am so grateful to our brothers and sisters at Myers Park who, since their first team came to work with us in 2003, have understood this ministry and fully embraced a partnership with CRMP and with the Methodist churches in Costa Rica.  We're already making plans for the project they'll work on next year and I'm sure it will be as successful as always.

We'll spend the next few days trying to enjoy a little bit of Holy Week while also preparing for next week's teams.  We'll have a full house with a total of 28 people for several days.  That should be a big help for getting all the concrete mixed and poured, getting the roof on the house and hopefully finishing the plastering.  

The heat is still very intense, so please continue to be in prayer for everyone's health and safety on the work sight.  Peace on Earth.
