Aibonito, PR – Weekly Report – Dec 3-7, 2018
December 11, 2018
This week we had three volunteers from PA and one local volunteer from San Juan, PR. The volunteers did reconstruction and repairs on Gerardo’s home. Gerardo is a very generous individual that is always helping others with their construction needs. He injured his foot several weeks ago and is on crutches. John did his best to assure the homeowner, who has done construction for the last 40 years, that the team would do a good job.
John’s “survival” Spanish and his phone app, Google Translate, were generally adequate for communication. The team installed new rafters, sheeting, and metal on the roof and worked on the floor joists and flooring in his kitchen/bedroom. They worked well together as a team and it was a challenge to keep them busy – they “worked too fast.”
Gerardo was very pleased and blessed by the work done this week.
