So today we started off with doing our daily devotions in our book about Joseph. Today's devotion was about favoritism When we insult people we are really insulting how God made them. After that we had some magnificent muffins, fresh pineapple, and eggs from Mrs. Suzannah for breakfast. After breakfast 6 of the guys went to the dump to get rid of all the trash from the truck. Elijah and Alex said "Nah" and stayed to help Mrs. Suzannah with dishes and cleaning...which was the wise choice as some of the guys came back smelling like a dead body. Once we all rejoined, we headed over to the church to dig the foundation for a fence.
We started to dig the Mariana Trench. Well, it might have come short a few feet, but details, details. Meanwhile, we cycled out Trey, Andrew, and Elijah to clean the upstairs of the church, which happened to be infested by city birds that migrated because... season reasons. The rest of us were digging. Once we dug out the path for the foundation, we headed off to eat lunch. For lunch we had cheese sandwiches and the watermelon we had bought at the market yesterday. After that we continued digging our trench for a few hours. The digging was really hard work. Lots of rock and roots got in our way. NOT to mention all the blisters we obtained from the digging. After all the hard work, we were really proud of what we had accomplished! Even though it was hard, we all learned valuable life lessons about working together.
After all the hard work, we took cool showers to relax us. For dinner we had some palatable spaghetti made by the world famous Mrs. Suzannah (P.S she is an amazing cook). We then all got ready for our last church service here in Belize. Alex did a great job playing the sax and the quartet did a superior job on their song. Pastor Andrew preached on laying aside all weights that hinder your walk with God. To conclude it was a hard but good day.
