Their original plan was to lay the foundation for our school. Once again, complications hindered starting the building project. As it now stands, we hope to start construction in early summer.
The delay may have been providential, however. Instead of pouring cement for our school, the team was able to do a makeover for the orphanage where several of our students live. They painted bare concrete walls, sealed a leaky roof, installed a shower, fixed a sink, tiled a bathroom, built a door, and landscaped a backyard that was a junkyard.
We trust that God orders our stops as well as our steps.
The short-term visitors were joined by two new long-term volunteers. Last month, Brian and Michael, graduates of Calvary Commission Bible College, began their one year practicum with us. These guys have a heart for God, a zeal to share Christ and readiness to serve others. Currently, they are both learning Spanish and helping in the church.
Finally, Amelia, the boys and I are planning on our annual pilgrimage to a Far Country in the North. On March 11 we arrive in in Lindale, Texas where we will be based until May. We hope to travel and visit as many friends, family and churches as possible during that time. As I told the group from Denver, San Antonio and Minnesota, “We are coming to a city near you.”
