C is for Cande, C is for courage

Several folks on our team came without knowing anyone else on the trip. C- had the courage not only to join a team of strangers, but despite speaking only spanish, she joined a team of anglos. Each morning she lead our team and family in a spanish prayer. What an encouragement to start the day with her words of blessing and thanksgiving.

Applying stucco is a physically demanding job. By the time you reach the stucco phase, you are tired and exhausted from two days of hammering and sawing. Cande amazed us all with her determination and strength lifting shovel after shovel of concrete stucco.
