Rotational Duties

My job to date this term is called "rotational duties". This involves several different tasks on different days, but my constant is supplying 21 water stations throughout the building.

Haggai previously purchased it's water, but a purification system was acquired in 2006, so we now purify our own water.

Water is very important because of temperatures, but also because of people coming here from all over the world. With upwards of 200 people in the facility, we go through a substantial amount of water. In fact last week, I filled 36 - 5 gallon bottles of water.

A couple of my other tasks are outside, which is a nice break from indoor duties. One is cleaning the signs, one of which is a brass "address" on the front of the building - so "brite boy" is my friend.

Marlene and I did "on call" yesterday from 6:30 am until 10:00pm and with 120 female participants, we were busy. When on call you respond to room problems, etc, etc. So today, other than being out to church, it is a rest day.

Marlene can report on her duties in a future post.

We haven't been out to take many pictures, so that can also be for a future post.

All in all, things are going well!

Good Morning Ralph and Marlene
Sounds like you will be well rounded in running the operations there. It also sounds like a great experience. Hope the coffee is good at 6:30 A.M. and that you are getting a chance to see the football games. It has just been cold and blowing snow here. We get our exercise and Cecilia keeps reminding me that this is Canada.

6:00 AM
