Guatemala Photo of the Day – Let’s Get This Party Started

I remember arriving at the job site the first day last summer, and wondering how in the world we would accomplish the task at hand – to build two houses in a week (with a very limited building team).  I think this is what we were all thinking as we started our first work day this summer.

As I stood back observing and taking pictures, I was partially afraid and mostly just ready to get to work.  It wasn’t the party many of you expect, but there is nothing quite like celebrating the construction of a new home for a widow and her family.  The party was just getting underway as we met the family and tried to determine the initial steps in our building project.
