Day 9 | Kenton Morlan
First day completed!! Today i got to go help build a house which included hand moving cinderblocks by hand, sifting sand, shoveling sand, and building walls. Needless to say i did not lay the block, not in my skills, but i did do the rest and sweated very much doing so. It was hard and hot work but i would do it again. I mostly carried blocks today so my arms are quite exhausted and worn out. We moved around 650 blocks today to the location. I also spent a lot of time in the sifting pile shoveling and sifting. Its humbling to know and have the chance to help them make sand. Yes i said make sand. As my dad says, “they live on an island how can they not sell sand.” Well its a lot of work but it can be fun too. I enjoyed every minute of today and I'm blessed to be a part of it. I wanna thank and continue to ask for prayers for me and the crew just to keep our minds and hearts in the right place. I will continue to pray and think of all of you back home and my church. I miss my teens and my dog but I'm happy to be here. I love you all and will be thinking and praying for you. God bless you all.
