San Antonio del Matty

On Saturday, 11/12, our team began work in the 3rd village of San Antonio del Matty. Similar to the village of Jerico, the village is smaller, however, the people of San Antonio were extremely friendly and welcoming of our team. Before we were able to step off the bus, many locals were already on their way down to the main pavilion to greet us.

Saturday was the hottest day we’ve had so far during our time here in Bolivia. Luckily it did not rain at all, but the sun was beating down on all of us all day long. Despite the hot weather, the team decided to work a little extra to make sure all of the secondary wire was hung for the entire village.

Since it was Saturday, all of the children of the village were home from school and were very interested in the work we were doing. Some of our guys, even found a couple of helpers to assist them along the way! Needless to say, the people of San Antonio del Matty were extremely grateful of the work we are doing for them and their community. The smiles on their faces says it all.
