Confused? So Are We. Here Is An Update

Our mandate this year is to install and fix stoves and put in some sinks and provide some lamina roofing (Sheet metal roofing)  All this will be done in time.  We started however by completing a bed project started by Qualicum Rotary Club and are now constructing a new house for  Petrona, one of our guides (story coming soon). The stoves and sinks should arrive on Monday but one never knows until they are actually here. Owing to the language problems and local customs things are often very confusing and usually money has to be in hand before delivery.  We depend heavily  on Jacqueline and David to stick handle through the puzzle.  If things permit we will be working on a new house for a lady whose house was totally destroyed by a rock slide.

Following are pictures from the distribution of the 35 sheets of roof lamina .  The sheets this year are heavier and a bit longer.
