Sometimes I feel I am pulling from the closet all the time for winter clothes and coats then spring and summer clothes then shoes then underwear and PJ's. I am always thankful that what I have need of is provided. In the closet or at the market. This is two of our girls at House of Hope and the next couple of pictures is of House of Faith. We let the older children chose their own things and I love watching them.
We are trying to build up our garden area it has been very discouraging with cows goats and chickens always getting in to eat our nursery of plants. While the children where out of school for holiday we decided to grass the fence to keep the animals out. The cows watched as they worked. Praying this will protect our plants. We are also trying to protect our chickens and their newly hatched babies by fencing them in and giving each hen a nest of her own. Everything here is a work in progress Keep Praying!
Everyone enjoyed their Holiday play times with babies and lego's.... I was so blessed as the moms passed out toys and not one child was fighting over anything. Toys are not found here like the ones that have been brought over from the states and everyone was just excited to play. The last picture is of a wire truck with polish tin wheels. This is the type of toys they are use to the ones they make themselves. :)
With Sheri in the states we have been checking in on the House of Hope kids each week and the building site. We painted the second house while she was away and did I get a surprise. The 5 tins of paint I thought was Sky Blue was Aqua... I was thankful that all 5 tins were the same since I was not around when they started painting.
The veranda has been finished the foundation of one section of a guest house has been prepared and a road to the top of the hill is being worked on. So many projects happening all bit by bit....
August, September and October are busy weekends for sharing the Jesus Film. Michael packs the vehicle with the equipment and small tent for sleeping over night and heads out. Most of the sites for the film are newly planted churches far from town. We are seeing the Lord move in mighty ways among his people.
