OH, how much it has rained this summer… It is so hard to get the clay walls dry… and now the temporary tarpaulin roof is blowing a bit this way and that…
Today we finally was hoping to go and get some roof trusses, but NO… impossible in the pouring rain.
But anyhow we made a few hours working in the chapel today: with the coffe jar windows. Here Threeday from Burma is putting some clay mixture around the recycled jars:
Aurelie who has been wwoof-ing with us for two weeks, today with perfection put a nice clay cover to one of the coffe windows.
Tomorrow Aurelie will leave and go back to France.
All other wwoof-ers – except Vincent – also has left according to their plans and our agreements. We are very happy that Vincent will stay with us yet another month and a half. He is helping with all sorts of things, not only working with his hands but also doing quite some planning and “figuring out” different things and how they should be done…
We hope for some more help soon, one or two wwoof-ers/work-away-ers as soon as possible to become our new friends and companions… because we really need to be several persons – and preferably helpers with carpenters experiences. Autumn is coming soon and we really need to have a waterproof and snow-bearing roof on the chapel before mid october.
We hope that St. Joseph himself will help us get in contact with the right person or persons to arrive as soon as possible!
