"Hola! We started off the day by having a nice breakfast which consisted of oatmeal and fresh bananas. Then it was time to split off into our construction groups for the day. One group went back to the coffee production site to continue moving dirt to level the land. The other two groups went to different mixed houses (block house on the bottom and wood on top) to paint and sifted gravel. After a long morning of work, we headed back to the mission for a delicious lunch. Lunch consisted of pasta with meat sauce along with some more fresh fruit. After lunch, we stopped by the women’s center to learn more about Guatemalan culture. The women’s center provided us more insight to how they do their laundry, make tortillas, and carry wood. After listening and learning, we headed over to the playground and slid down the slides. It was all fun and games until Bridget ripped her pants. We headed back to the mission to have a nice dinner of carrot soup, veggies, garlic bread and leftover pasta from lunch. Dinner was followed by our favorite local rolled ice cream shop. Now after reflection, we are off to bed and are excited for our early morning."
