On to phase two of our plan. Rebuild and provide shelter for our family. It’s not just my mother in father-in-law. It’s many people that my family have taken in over the years. Plus my 2 brother-in-laws, and their families. As well as the grandchildren. One house for about 15 people!
I learned a new Tagalog word today. Pawis… Means Sweat. We worked in the 91F sun all day. I have worked in the sun before. But nothing like this. Amazing hot!
Today we began by picking up shovels, cement and supplies. We started by digging the holes for the pillars that will support the new home. Since our home was completely destroyed we decided to start over on the property we purchased at the beginning of the year.
It’s nothing fancy… But it will serve the purpose. We are building it out of concrete to protect the family for the future.
I know many of you have been trying to get in touch with me. I can only get internet at night via a pocket WIFI at the house I’m staying in. It’s extremely slow and I can only use it for a few minutes. I have to charge my laptop and cell phone during the day on our generator and rush to get online at night before the battery dies. So please bare with me. We cannot run the generator at night because of the thief’s and shootings at night.
Below are the pictures. Thank you again for your help!
