Meet the Mookies!

Pardon our lack of blog activity.  The first few days of our trip have been strenuous and tiring, but rewarding.

We are going to present the first five days of our trip via pictures:

Day 1: Embarkation and Advent

Sleeping on the plane

Drilling rig at Tranquilidad at 160 feet, expected to hit water at 200 feet

Eventually a water tower will be built here


DAY 2: The Children of Texoxingales 

Our first job site was in Teo, where we roofed a school building.

Progress

It takes minute detail
It takes a holy life
It takes motions
It takes dedication
it takes a death
And only God can allow it,
and you couldn’t do it if you’re not the seed of God
And so the path through the great corridors,
these are corridors unto his perfection,
that is which the prophet and the Urim and Thummim has penetrated,
that through this great sea of blackness
that we penetrated through these corridors
and we went through that last segment
where we went through these dark serpentines
We passed through that corridor.
