Then on a designated Saturday, We gathered together about thirty five young adults. This event was postponed several times as well. Island time is very hard to get used to planning around. Clyde brought lots of tools from the humanitarian storage container. There were shovels, picks, rakes, etc. He did not bring any of the machettes. They are dangerous! Of course, the young people wanted them. That is what they are used to using. The school director brought some out. Please notice that the young people are wearing the yellow "helping hands" vests that the church uses around the world.
The director of the school started asking many questions about the church and how willing the kids were to give up a Saturday. Clyde took the time to instruct him - and he gave him a Book of Mormon. We always have some in the car just in case there is a need. The school also provided juice and cookies for our hard workers. There were some heavy concrete benches to move around, too.
Some of the young people were in and out during the day. We could never get all of them together at once. Notice how happy they are. These are truly great kids!!!
