Hey!
The last 2 weeks have gone by so fast… We’ve had Jeff and Tim Pratt as our speakers, yes they are brothers. Their teaching made a huge impact on me, I’ve really enjoyed it!

Amanda, Amy, Alicia and I went with some other peps at the base to watch Giezi’s soccergame a Friday night… It was fun!




Last weekend the DTS build a house with Homes Of Hope. The house was pretty close to where I was building the weekend before, so I got to see a lot of the same people again, which was fun. The DTS had a lot of fun building. I ended up being the “Safety manager”, the believing that no one would be injured anyways, but I was wrong… Abigail got a spit square in her head, and was bleeding and stuff… It was ok, she’s alright, and she did not end up retarded or anything…
The house turned out real great, and we had sooo much fun, and it did not rain, so that was good. The whole second day I spend on the roof and I absolutely love it! J

The family we were building for was a family of 3. Their daughter’s name is America, cause they don’t like America and she was such a bad kid when she was little… Haha! Its true!!



Sweats $8 at walmart!



Me and Melanie, the girl i build for the weekend before.
The walls are going up.







At the end of the first day..

Safety manager!!







The house is finished!!!


Valentines day went by, we had a cupcake party and Ashley’s mom send us a lot of stuff, so it was a lovely day!

The Fall DTS is back from their outreach, they’ve been at the base for 1 week now, and their graduation was yesterday. Its awkward having so many people at the base, and they are SO much louder than us, so it’s been interesting…









Tacos is good… We have a lot of taco stands by the base, and if we miss out on dinner or don’t want the lunch or something we just run up there to get some… Its veeery good! And cheap!!

Aa bygge hus er bare noe vi gjoer i helgene, vi har annet praktisk arbeid (jeg vasker de offentlige doene og leilhetene paa basen... ikke frivillig...). Huset vi bygde her var det hele DTS'n som gjorde, ogsaa bygger vi ca 1 hus til hver, men da er det bare noen som er med de andre teamene som bygger og hjelper dem... Vi faar forskjellige grupper nedover som bygger, ungdomsgrupper, arbeidsplasser, skoler...

Bildene er av kjaeresten til vesle-kai, om noen aar. Hun har faatt'n av meg. Yes.

Næmen, dette var jo velldig intresant. trenger ikke noen fagblader når jeg bare kan lese bloggen din... Nei da, det er kandkje ikke norsk standard, men det er gøy å se uansett. jasså så du har blitt HMS ansvarlig å greier, du vet at alle håndtverkere er liveredde hms ansvarligen, han kan jo tvinge dem til å ha på hjelm eller andre plagsomme sikkerhetsutstyr.
Men det ser da ut som du har det bra i hvert fall, det er jo bra
