Day 1- After a 16-hour busride from Sao Paulo

Day 1- After a 16-hour busride from Sao Paulo to Montes Claros and then a ride with Padre Kyiti to Chapadinha, we visited the community center. Nilson, a local leader and partner of ours, had already been working all day on the construction of the addition, the bathrooms and doctors office. The men were excited to show us what they had already done and for us to meet the head mason, a man who they requested from the mayor and received for free. Chapadinha residents visited us at the center by foot, horse, and motorcycle throughout the afternoon. Juliana, a woman who will cook for the construction workers said hello with her daughter. Nilson’s 80 year old father and his 13 year old niece helped out at the site too– moving bricks!
