Projects in Progress
Sand, Gravel for the Concrete
Dear Brothers and sisters,
Good morning to all of you. I pray that the Lord will grant you an excellent day!
Yesterday evening I left the work site of the transitional church building at 7 PM. Some of the guys were there working in preparation to pour the concrete roof for the eastern side of the building. They will do the western side tomorrow, Lord willing.
Last Prep in order to Pour Concrete Tomorrow
Please continue to praise God for His generosity toward us. Remember to ask special blessings for all the donors who have graciously given from the time we launched this building campaign until today. Thanks to all of you who have donated. Some of you have signed many checks in the last 18 months to enable the progress of the construction. Be assured that the Lord will continue to bless you.
Spreading the Fillers in the Classrooms
I also want you to know that the construction of Fred Green Elementary and High School continues. Building in such hilly terrain is difficult and costly. Nothing is done rapidly when it comes to the ground work in such a context. I am learning these things. We praise God for every inch of progress that He Himself has orchestrated. Join me, please, in giving Him all praise and glory.
Clearing Old fences to Unifying the land
I have to share with you that we are running out of funds for the school’s construction. Please help us continue with it. We want the school to be up and running this coming September (2015). It can be done and by the grace of God it will be done. But this necessitates the effort and sacrifice of all of us. Together we can continue to assure a better future for Haitian children.
Transporting Cacti for the Fence
The last three photos are meant to give you an idea of what is taking place with the farm project. Those of you who have been there may remember the separate lots that farmers used to farm. We have bulldozed all the cacti, except those on the perimeter of the second field. We now have a big open space of about 25 acres where we aim to raise different crops in the next few months. Dad used to say to me over and over again, “One day at a time.” This progress may look small in appearance, but it is big in a sense. Yesterday we were not where we are today. I hope we move further tomorrow.
My hope is that in the next three months, with the rainy season coming, we can start feeding people off this land. For that to take place the cactus fence is necessary. Wherever the fence needs to be repaired, we will repair, so that we can start planting soon. Brother Tony Owens brought me a lot of seeds. We will try planting everything possible.
