We are making steady progress on the foundation. It is back-breaking work as you can see in the photos below. Some of the young men are using a few boards lashed together as a makeshift dolly to carry the heavier stones.
As a reward for their hard work Father Swit gave the men a chicken. He informs us that most people in Bumai do not eat meat or poultry very often as it is expensive. So although it might seem like a simple thing to us, it is actually a very generous gift!
