Team 15 - Day 8 & 7... Ministry and farm!!!

The team has recently welcomed two new members, father and son duo Nic & Reuben, from Melbourne, who couldn't travel with the team but are with them now. Their arrival brings the team count to 20, which makes this team one of the larger teams of HopeBuilders and the first of a Queensland/Victorian combination. Each morning some members have ventured up to Monkey Mountain to reflect and enjoy the sunrise and the beauty of God's creation and even to encounter some monkeys - hence the name.

Team #15 is also now ramping up the pace on the expansion of the Village of Hope farm project, as of today having erected a large portion of the steel structure and pouring the concrete supports. Designs are underway to possibly include an outdoor pen area which will house a Crush (used for keeping cows calm while being milked) to assist in the milking process.

Previously on Day 7, the first Children’s Ministry session was held with great success. The village children were involved in many exciting activities such as a worship time, Bible story & lesson, puppet show, large group games and personalised arts & crafts. The afternoon came to a close as the village children & Team #15 enjoyed watching Happy Feet in the main hall. The team looks forward to hosting the next ministry morning in the coming days.

When chatting to some of the team members about how they feel... here is what they said: Ryan says " great fun", Tom says..."what do you mean we need more bricks", Peter's a bit tired and loves a soda on the balcony!!

Of course. I am cute!
