February 2008 Sucre Construction Team

On Feb. 17, 2008 the first Mission of Hope construction teamof 13 people from Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia arrived in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. After a quick tour of the current Mission of Hope clinic in Santa Cruz, they flew to the city of Sucre to break ground and lay the foundation for a new medical clinic. The team worked hard at an altitude of 9,000 feet, at times under very intense sun, digging footers, cutting and tying steal, and mixing and pouring concrete. The brothers and sisters from the local church volunteered their time to work along side the team and help out.
