Week Five

Even though working on our ministry projects was n important part of Elton's trip. Equally important was to get to spend time with family.  This little boy to the right is Elton's half-brother, Zechariah. He is about 5 years old and is quite fond of being his big brother's alarm clock. 

An important structure to complete was the guardsman house/storeroom.  If the field was left unattended, it would be a very large temptation for people to steal.

The guardsman's house will be traditional style construction of poles and termite mud.  Here Elton is using a pick to break apart a termite mound.

 The dust will be mixed with water.
 Mud is then packed in between the poles and dries almost as hard as concrete.
