Steve and Jared are doing a great job with the construction and repairs. Many repairs have been done. The walls are going up on the back wing. We are working on wiring the first wing. Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!
Finishing these 2 wings is very important because we totally lost our 18 room main building. We only have 4 actually finished rooms and 6 partly-built rooms for 14 classes, school kitchen and storeroom, library, a pharmacy, an office, living space for 60 people, and visitor's dorms and kitchen. It is crowded and difficult.
Construction is coming to a slow down or a halt. We are ready to put the concrete roof on both the back wing and the second floor of the first wing. I do not have the funding to do this. Please pray for the funding to put roof on these 2 wings.
Please remember to put my name on any donations because only the funding designated to my personal account under my name is put in my account for me to use. This includes child sponsors, staff homes, construction, everything.
Many individuals and churches have donated to the re-construction efforts already. Praise the Lord!!!!!!!! Thank you very much. It has brought us very far.
Here is some of what we have done so far:
Cleaned broken walls, razor wire, and other hazards from yard
Built security wall around perimeter of property
Given assistance to neighbors
Begun assistance to staff to replace personal belongings and homes, this is not finished
Construction - foundation, walls and repairs

Today Steve turned 60. He is a long way from home but they made him feel at home. The children made him cards and brought them to him off and on all day. They had fun and a cake for him. Family from here called or sent him messages. Hopefully he felt loved on his special day.
