#26 – Construction update

From Lynne:

The work around here goes smoothly, and it is interesting to see how the builders perform their craft.

Workers plastering ceilings with cement mixture

Walls inside and out get the same treatment, and thousands of wheelbarrows of a cement/plaster mixture are mixed by hand and carried in.

The Sisters of St. Joseph do a lot of great work, some of which includes funding, like for this clinic:

  1. This is a neat picture. I’m presuming the window in the background is the one that you worked on.

    Safe trip home, Lynne. I’ll be with you all the way.

    As our sectional meets tomorrow be assured of our prayers for your safe journey back to St. Louis.
    I will have my computer available to any sisters who might have had the joy of seeing this website… they just have to see it!!!

    Again, thanks for having the updates for us back here who are always curious about what is happening in Gulu. Hugs to Jo Ann and Marian!

    Thanks again, Lynne, for the Gulu update. Please give Jo a hug from me as you depart. I will look forward to talking with you upon your return to St. Louis. I enjoyed the photos Iris sent yesterday. They were great –even one of Jim ready to leave for this adventure –suitcase in hand!. Love, Cec

    When do Joann and Marion move in?


    P.S. While Muggs was at Dianes she e-mailed for your web site so I think she has had a chance to see it. Got a message yesterday and she is back home. Will call today to see how things went.

    Have I missed you completely, Lynne? and Jo? and Marion?

    It’s been a month and I am just now finding how to read your entries–oh, well.

    So glad you were able to go and be of such help, too. Safe home and I look forward to a chat and more pictures. Love the ones you have here.

    Joy to you Gulu-affected heart!

    Pat Quinn
