Jet laggers got more sleep and were eager to face work day # 2 with a situation geared to use more workers efficiently. And a mission team from Illinois joined us for the morning and were most helpful. They supervised and – after only brief instriuctions – filled many process positions including book sorters, book dusters (a nasty job; next time bring face masks for this task!), pocket removers, pocket and book stampers, and pocket inserters, etc. The work began to flow faster and smoother. Some of the nastiest work involved emptying books off shelves so that they could be moved to better locations (see pictures). At 1 p.m. we stopped for lunch, again at the Mubichis, where we were joined by young student volunteers from an area technical school. (Click on any photo to enlarge it.)
