Day 17: Bethsaida dig (day 5)
“It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday…” Sorry, I couldn’t help it. It is Friday here and the last day of our first week of digging. Today, there is no lecture and no pottery reading. That means, FREE TIME!
I haven’t had free time in so long, we are actually just sitting here and doing nothing. When I say that, I mean there are several of us just sitting here, not moving, not talking while Sam runs around and annoys us. Honestly, we don’t mind. We are just too tired to fight him right now.
Today was alright. I got to work in the heat all day outside of the shaded tarps. Our leader asked me to clear a site for digging, and honestly, it was way more work than I anticipated. I found myself hoeing, shoveling, and throwing rocks all day and still didn’t finish half of it.
On the bright side, Lloyd found a new job that kept him constantly busy. He was running around surveying and mapping the site. Sam was very well behaved today, more so than usual. And we found two more dead guys, so I would call the day a success. Sadly, I didn’t get many pictures, but I should get some more on Monday.
Anyway, this is a short post; I don’t really have much to say. God is good. I am loving this. Talk to you later.
Following His Call,
