Dedication of House

All the crews gather for the dedications.
Through an interpreter, we dedicate the house and present it to the family

Keys to the house are presented

As the door is unlocked, everyone cheers.
Then we all gather around the house to pray.

After the dedication our family and the family our crew built a house for last year, prepared dinner for us. Homemade tortillas baked outside and a meat stew!

Wherever you find a bathroom, you find a line of women outside it! Two years ago our crew had bushes. Last year the outhouse was completed on the 2nd building day. We were extrememly fortunate this year in that our site had access to a flushing toilet!
