Our Team had a great trip to El Salvador. The local people we have met are very friendly and have made us feel at home.

Team at Beach Table
We arrived on Sunday evening and settled in to our hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. On Sunday evening, we sat on the porch, looked out over the Pacific Ocean, and discussed our task that lay ahead.

Sunset at Beach
Then the Lord blessed us with an awesome sunset.

Preparing to Drill
We were up early Monday morning for coffee, a devotional and breakfast, and then off to work. We arrived at the job site where several of the local folks were waiting for us. We had an hour or so before things were to start so several of us played frisbee with a couple of the local boys. What fun we had. Those boys had big grins on their faces. Then it was time to work. We made a plan and got down to business.

Lunch at Drill site
We dug a couple of pits for later use, leveled and prepared the rig. We ate lunch down the street at a local residence. The lady there made us a fabulous meal. After lunch we returned to the drill site and got back to work.

We drilled for 2 hours and found a little water before our drilling rig broke down. Stanley, our driller, says we don’t have much further to go tomorrow after we repair the drill rig. We returned to our hotel late and worn out.

The Lord indeed blessed us with a great day.
