Site Inspection

A typical day at the job site. The girls are learning to build and to point and talk just like Daddy and the foremen Mr. Richard and Mr. Lawrence. They were really cute as they began building their own houses for goats and chickens right next to the site where all the workmen were really working hard on the school block. Sophia came to me to show me just how she had been so careful to make all her angles right angles. She really does listen to her dad and is learning a lot about construction.

Steve and Richard discuss the days activities at the job site. Steve does a walk through most every day, measuring and making sure that the walls are plumb, the corners are all set at the right angles and the windows are located correctly. He has to insure all materials are delivered and accounted for so as to prevent any slowdowns on the project. He is the liaison between the foremen and the building committee managing schedule, quality, and accountability on building project. This is no small task as this is an all cash society.

And he said he would never climb Ugandan scaffolding... Anything for God! Any OSHA conscious individuals should avert your eyes as these pictures show Steve measuring and checking for level at 10+ feet up on eucalyptus pole scaffolding held together with nails and rope.

"All for Him my precious Savior, I surrender all"
