Second mechanics module underway!

Rick Cogbill arrived earlier this month to teach the next module of the mechanic training program in Mozambique. Since the mission’s community grinding mill broke down recently, he and the students used it as an opportunity for some hands-on learning as well.

Besides teaching and incorporating various repair projects as practical components, Rick has also been operating the backhoe to help the crew working on the airstrip and has undertaken to see progress made on construction of the maintenance facility.

Peter, the mission’s construction department head, begins building the pillars.

Progress on the maintenance pit which will be used to service vehicles.

We rejoice to see this much-needed facility taking shape!
