Construction on the older boys house has begun! The photo above is of the first room to be stuccoed after all the beds and closest have been moved to the other side of the apartment. Everyone is still living in the house and continue on with their daily lives, only a bit closer together. Things can get pretty cramped when you have all 11 boys on one side of the apartment with the bunk beds practically touching each other. But it’s worth all the agony. The walls were previously covered with a woven white plastic material called “rafia” which covered the exposed brick for safety reasons. Once the team from Liberti Church (located in Philadelphia) arrives, they will begin projects like painting the boys apartment which will give the apartment a much nicer look and feel even more like a home. Once all the walls are painted and all is finished, the exterminator will come and rid the apartment of pests. This wasn’t possible with the rafia on the walls, because the pests would just return again and again. But, now with stuccoed walls, they have no place to hide :) I can say, from my own point of view, that this construction is very exciting!
