Since our last update we have made many trips to camp, usually spending two days at a time and performing various maintenance tasks as well as preparing for our major undertaking for this year – the renovation of the house into a dormitory.
Here are some of our latest projects:
One of our local churches donated eight used benches to the camp. They needed to be disassembled, taken to camp, painted, and reassembled.
As we make preparations to turn the house into a dormitory, we want to take advantage of any materials we already have on hand. There were roughly 700 bricks left over from the construction of our kitchen back in 2019-2020. These we piled into the truck and took them down to the house.
The wooden gate at the front of our property had fallen into disrepair. Luan – on of the members of our development team – made a new one.
Keeping nature at bay is a constant struggle here in the sub tropics. For this reason, every time we go to camp there is a lot of mowing involved. In addition to this, Itacyara is applying her gardening talents to the camp, taking it to a whole new level of aesthetic beauty.
Sealing the Floor
We keep the pavilion floor painted a sealed, to protect it from the depredations of nature.
The access to our new property was not adequate for the entrance of large vehicles carrying needed construction materials, neither was it conducive to buses bringing loads of campers. Thus, a new entrance road was necessary.
Stay tuned…lots more to come!
