A day Building...Pouring columns and watching the weather

Well we have our work cut out for us. (us who are reading this) The team needs prayers, for health and energy to keep working on the project.  But there is also a tropical storm headed their way.  Check out for updates. From what I can tell from here in Michigan it looks like Monday will be the day it passes over them.

Typhoon predicted track just to the east of them

Robert and Bob cutting lumber for column forms. They are both retired, living in Waxhaw, NC.
Pouring the first full column.
Want some? Isaac is also from Waxhaw, NC.
The men return at the end of the day very tired. John fell asleep with his coffee cup in hand! He got sick during the night with intestinal problems and spent Friday sleeping and resting.
Isaac and Dave continued laying block on Friday, day 5. Isaac works as a mason so is well experienced. Dave learned how to lay block on another mission trip. He is a retired loan officer and gentleman farmer.
Elden and Rob took over with the welding. Elden is the mayor of a small town in Illinois. Rob works for an excavating company in Ohio and helps his dad with welding jobs from time to time.
Late afternoon at the work site. It's a beehive of activity!
