Sea Container Underground
Last week before Thanksgiving, Anco and I worked on cutting in a door on the underground sea container. Anco had a giant hole dug by hand with a few Malians to bury a sea contain to house all the solar stuff out at Bethel Bible School. It took them a month to dig the hole into the hard rock surface. Heat is a huge problem here and has a tendency to ruin a lot of things including very expensive batteries for the system. With the container buried underground, this will provide a cooler environment for the equipment and we will be able to control the humidity and temperature a lot more easily. Next, we will be installing a new floor into the container made of plastic because the termites ate out the wood floor already, another huge problem. We are still looking for people to donate to this project and get the bible school totally up and running on 100% solar. If you are interested, please contact me.
On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, a group of us went out to the "pig farm" which is outside of town about 7 miles, via running, biking, and walking. Well, I didn't do any of those things and rode my motorcycle with the water jugs strapped to the racks for everyone else. It was a good time had by all.
