Today has been another day of gather information . . .
The architectural team has been meeting with Doctors and trying to get a good sense of how the hospital works, so that their design can reflect that process. Redesign of obstetrics is high on the list, so today Mark & Kylan were walking through with Dr. Esther (and got to see two babies just minutes old 🙂 )
The civil team . . . well, mostly Curtis, because the others were busy elsewhere . . . continued to walk the site with various staff members to locate existing electric and water systems
Mitch was tasked with surveying the courtyard areas . . . and I got to act as rodman (4 eMi trips, and the first time I was pressed into service as a rodman . . . that’s pretty amazing!)
Ian was also working on as-builts . . . measuring up the pharmacy area. When Mitch was done surveying, I joined Ian to hold the measuring tape.
I’m not exactly sure which team Kevin was on today . . . he was likely liaising between all of them and making sure we were all on track.
Here’s our office, set up in the main area of the guest house . . .
And of course, there was a meeting with Galmi staff to get them updated on our progress, then another team meeting to share where we’re at . . . and to share some more testimonies. Steven and Chad joined us for that, and it was neat to hear how they ended up in Niger too . . .
Besides the technical stuff, I managed to get some photos resized and uploaded (as you can tell). The Niger Album is here . . . and you should be able to access it whether or not you have facebook. I’ll be adding photos throughout the week as I get the chance (we’ve discovered the internet is much better early in the morning or late at night).
I’ve also found another project that suits me well . . . reorganizing the guesthouse library. Today I got through the adult fiction . . . just alphabetizing and pulling out duplicates. It’s a great way to use up spare minutes when I’m not out and about . . .
Enjoy the pictures. Keep praying for us. Pray for stamina, and for innovative ideas . . .
