Hello Everyone,

Unfortunately, Thursday ended in disappointment. The cement mixers we were promised by the Mayor did not become a reality. After double checking the arrangement over the past 3 weeks multiple times and finalizing on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning...I got a text yesterday at 4:30 pm that they could no longer provide even one mixer. I was so disappointed that they did not tell us sooner so we would have time to rent one even at a cost. So Friday will be a day of rest for the workers while construction is halted as we search for a cement mixer. We are hoping to obtain one for Saturday, and if not Saturday for Sunday, and if all else fails we will pour the second floor on Monday. But we are really crossing our fingers for the earliest day possible. Rain and time are not our structure's friend, we need to get this done ASAP.

Please send all your prayers this way. Obstacles are inevitable on construction sites, and I guess this is our first real set back. We need this to happen, everything else is ready to go!

Enjoy these silly photos of the children, who were oblivious to the frustration on the site Thursday. :)

Mom on

I can't believe city workers would be using the mixers on Saturday and Sunday, hope you can have them for the weekend. Sunday weather forecast in the Philippines looks clear and it is God's day, I'm sure He won't mind you working for such a good cause!
