Paraguay, Next Day
|In the morning we headed to the Site Office and from there to the Open Centre. We brought along tools to help us do a number of repair jobs which needed doing.|
|Here Roddie is installing light bulbs in the fluorescent fixtures.|
|Kent organized all of the gardening prep activities requested by Vivian, the agriculture enthusiast at the Centre.|
Monika took over the window repair preparation and ordered
glass to replace the broken ones.
|John repaired the little chairs to make them more secure. Longer nails were ordered.|
|Michelle and Karen practised their hacksaw skills as they cut up a foosball game to use as a raised planter.|
John also helped change light bulbs with his extensive electrical skills.
|Kent and Evo, son of Vivian, hang the tarp around the garden to protect it from tiny feet and animal matter.|
|Douglas, Kate, and Sr. Graciela meet to organize the events for photos and videotaping.|
In the afternoon we drove out to the San Gaspar site. A warm welcome from the circle mothers, and the children awaited us. Unfortunately our activities were cut short by a torrential downpour, and a lack of space in the small shelter there.
