We finished the construction today! Now we turn over to Obligado the diligent task of leading the congregation! We are just a few hours from the big celebration. We have been inviting many friends and neighbors to the service, so we are expecting a big turnout. Thanks for keeping this special inauguration in your prayers. Today the men of the group each received a special mate cup made of holy wood. The women received very elaborate Nanduti lace doilies made locally. A small gesture for all the work and sacrifice of each person from St. Joe.
Tomorrow I'll post the pictures of the celebration service, as I'm sure it'll go pretty late.
