September 22, 2016

We started a new project today. We are installing two more 10,000 liter Milla tanks with platforms and basements in New England Ville. We went to see how it was going. There were about 20 men all standing around and only 4 of them were actually working. Two men were using pick axes and were chopping up the ground and two men were following them shoveling out the rocks and dirt. There was a lot of excitement in the air. These people live in a community where there is little water. We made sure the workers all had plenty of water. Unfortunately, we did not have any food. These men either don't have food to bring with them (which is probably the case) or don't think about bringing lunch. We are going to have to be more diligent on making sure the workers have water and food. They will work better and longer if they have some energy to draw on plus they will want to work for us if they know they will be taken care of. All the men that have been hired by our contractors have been hardworking. We are pleased with the quality of work.

Sister Clawson and I went furniture shopping to put into our apartment in Makeni.
