Stove Project: The End (Thank God)

Well I am going to attempt to wrap up this crazy stove project in this post. As of today I have one stove left to build. And hopefully that will be happening tomorrow. Lets all take a moment to cross our fingers.

So lets recap real quick. There were, at one time, three masons working on this project. Two in Alex Boy's site and one in mine. Well on the same day, one of Alex's masons dies and my mason has a heart attack. On.The.Same.Day.People. The next day people were coming up to me telling me that this project was cursed. Great, that is exactly what we did not need. We only had eight more stoves in my community. We were so close. Luckily Alex's other mason decided to save the day and agreed to come down to my community to build the last of the stoves.

I needed the materials for five more stoves, and I wanted to buy the all of the trees with the money my youth group raised. Neri offered to give me a lift in his giant blue truck. Thank God for Neri. We picked up the rest of my stove materials and the rest of Alex's stove materials. I then purchase 200 baby fruit trees. We have been distributing them all week. We have some Orange and Lime trees, but for the most part they are trees that produce fruit like Paterna and Mamon that do not exist in the states. Epic. 

Don Mario has been splitting his time between my site and Alex's, so it is taking a little longer than projected to finish this project. But I am hopeful that it will finish. And that the project is not actually cursed. Send me good vibes, we might need them. I am ready for my deep breath of relief for when this project is over.
