Thanks to all heavenly powers and our very kind and helpful WWOOF-ing friends so much is happening this week : ) Several days without frost, and today we were able to work in spite of the heavy rain.
Yesterday and today Kristin gave a lot of time and carefully built up the mountings of all the coffee jars inside the chapel on both sides. Look how nicely she have built them all in!
And over her head Vincent has continued patiently with the roof. Lärkan too. And today also J was helping out.
Here he is laying down on some planks that have been arranged to walk on up there… and he is looking down on us below : )
Now I am SOO HAPPY because it is only a few planks still to be built! But we HAD to stop before it was completed because we were out of nails! We already used up 1000 nails on the planks on the roof. Tomorrow Lärkan will drive and buy more nails.
I myself was today not working at all with hands-on… only sitting by the computer and telephone investigating several details about the covering of the roof. I have made several phone calls to talk to experts, I have done some reading and learned a little about the next step of our preparations of the roof.
Tomorrow morning the youngsters and I are leaving early in the morning. I am going to The Convent of St. Philotei, to enjoy Liturgy together with the nuns there. The youngsters will spend a day in Uppsala (that I will pass on my way to the convent.) When we meet again in the afternoon when I come back to Uppsala on my way home I will have to say good-bye to both Kristin and J. Today was their last day here. Eusebios is staying a few days more.
Lärkan and I are so thankful to them and all other WWOOF-ers that previously has contributed so much to the building of the chapel this summer! Of course we have a special and great gratitude to Vincent who already has stayed with us for more than two months and is planning to stay a bit longer.
And of course we are most thankful to St. Joseph for what we believe is his intercession and guidance.
