The Team Has Arrived

Great flurry of activity yesterday when the building team arrived. They are a team of a married couple and 8 single brothers - this is their full time job, going all over the place building new Salon del Reino's ( KH's) or fixing up broken ones.
Things seem to be more than a little disorganized which is frustrating for the likes of Mark and Chad, but when in Ecuador - you just have to go with the flow.
Talking of disorganized - we had our meeting last night in a different KH and while Mark had the keys to get in - nobody had thought to give him the keys to the sound box. He had to do the opening song (with no music) and the whole bookstudy without mics. Poor guy - he really has copped it all here (remember the no lights incident?). He took it all in his stride though in true kiwi fashion - even humming the tune for the song so that everyone could follow!

Looks like the conducting experience from Melodies in the Park came in handy for Uncle Mark a? :)
