Beautiful Teamwork.

Moving Dirt, drastic terracing to make the house last against erosion

Jair taking a break

Everybody, young and old helped. Many of the children liked to mix the dirt and water with bare feet, others helped transport water and rocks yet others helped move dirt and make mudd bricks. The villagers loved the interaction and the children enjoyed making new friends.

I have heard that mudd is really good for your skin!!! Just a thought!
Hey, could you explain the way mudd will last? My mind keeps replaying that the rainy season is coming, and that you have just made a house of mudd? Does not seem like a good mix! Thanks for sharing, as always I enjoy reading about your life!
Love & Prayers, Michelle Corbin
