Service Project, Painting Policlinica in Costa Azul

Elder Barrington one of our Zone Leaders came to La Paloma during a one day exchange with Elder Bravo. He was just in time to help with our service project. He is mixing the paint. The paint here is very different here. It consists of a bag of powder that you mix with water. It is very liquidy and is very difficult to put on the wall and almost impossible to get to stick to an overhead surface. It is like painting with skim milk. You put on one coat and let it dry and you can see that the surface color changed ever so slightly and then you put on another coat and another and another........ and then you have to clean up the ground because it runs down the walls and onto the ground or concrete and makes a mess. You just get it wet and scrub it with water and a broom and it dissolves and runs away.

We had to paint the walls first with bleach to kill the mold!

  1. Yuck. After doing so many remodeling jobs I officially am not a fan of painting and I only had to do 2 coats on a job. To think I would have to do more just makes me cringe.
